It wasn't exactly as I pictured it...
If I'm honest my head feels full. I roll into bed, drowsy-eyed, ready for a night of broken sleep and an early start. We are all fit and well, healthy and happy, and yet there has been a sense that something's wrong brewing for a few weeks now.
And I know exactly what it is.
When my life is busy and full, I go into autopilot. I run full throttle into everything that needs done... I go into power mode relying on my own strength and stamina. I jump from one thing to the next like a kid in a jumperoo (check out Elias with his new toy!)
And yet when I do that, I end up feeling lost.
Because I wasn't designed to power through life at break neck speed, flying solo... I was designed to rely every day on my Jesus... To cast my cares on him, to follow his lead, to find my strength and energy in his resources. And when I do that? Life functions better... I have peace and joy and rest in him.
And so I wave goodbye to the whirlwind... Life may still be busy, but it is no longer overwhelming. And I welcome the words Jesus spoke...
"Come to me you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light"
