Today was an on the feet all day, day. It was a good day and lots of fun, but only part way through my feet hurt…a lot. My task was not complete but my body didn’t want to continue. Now what? I chose to take some time to sit, not much time, just enough so that I could feel my soles again and continue on.
How often do we feel like our spiritual feet simply can’t go on? We push and push, trying to keep moving forward but find it is too much. Then we pray and ask God what to do and He directs is to His word:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
God calls us to rest and regain our strength through Him so we can get back up and keep moving forward. He is good to us and cares for us, don’t forget that. God is not a task master, He is our king. He gives us the strength to go on. Count on Him, trust in Him.
