On Fridays I join with others writing, just simply writing, on one word hosted by the gypsy mama. We write without editing and with freedom. Join me!
Today’s word is : TIRED
I just about busted out laughing when I read the word for today’s five minute Friday. Yesterday I found myself about as wiped out as a person could possibly be. I had been running non-stop for the past two days and even in the midst of serious lethargy I still didn’t rest. It wasn’t until the Lord physically caused me to stop through a tiny health-type scare did I sit down and rest for the remainder of the day.
I fully believe that sometimes the Lord gives us things like problems with out health…the flu, a bad cold, etc in order to make us stop. We all just have such a tendency in this life to think that everything we do has such an urgency that we keep moving and going, even when our bodies are screaming at us to STOP! That was me this week. And this weekend is going to be nuts with going, going, going like mad and it’s almost like the Lord was physically causing me to rest up.
It’s the reminder that even Jesus withdrew from all the people and crowds and went to be with his Father. He rested. Even God rested. Why can’t we?
