Here’s the truth on this lovely May morning … maybe it’s true for you, too?
I am in way over my head in every way. More to do than I can do. More people to write than I am able. More phone calls to make than I have time for, more tasks than I have energy for, more expectations than I am able to meet.
I am only one person. I cannot cope with all that is on my plate.
What does God require of me today?
"I am humble and meek, learn from me … “ says Jesus.
Unless we become like children, we cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Perhaps, right now, God would have me rest in this day that He has made and delight in the moments He has given. Perhaps He would have me live with my limitations and know my fragility as well as His strength. Perhaps I could admit my frailty and choose to live in His compassion and mercy. Perhaps I might acknowledge my failures while living in His redeeming, generous love.
God is opposed to the proud and gives grace to the humble.
Today, early this morning, I have found rest and peace in the midst of my flurry--a cup of warm tea and a bit of lovely music soothing my weariness. There are tiny spring leaves budding outside my window, and I am crawling up into the arms of my Father and seeking peace.
Only as I live in Him will I find peace today. I will seek to stay here as I go about my business.
The meek man will attain a place of soul rest. As he walks on in meekness he will be happy to let God defend him. The old struggle to defend himself is over. He has found the peace which meekness brings.-- A.W. Tozer
May you find rest today, friend.
