There are those times in life when everything seems to happen or come due at the same time. Those small, "perfect" storms in life may present stress in our lives. Those moments may cause us to lose sleep as we try to accomplish everything that needs done or give attention to all that needs attention. While we may not be able to avoid those busy seasons of life, we need to take care of ourselves, especially when we feel we don't have the time!
God is present in our lives, but He gives us the will and the ability to choose how we spend our time, energy, and resources. During times in our lives when we feel stressed, we may think that we don't have time to slow down or take a moment to stop. However, it is important in these times that we take care of ourselves, including our spiritual selves and our relationship with God. We need to be able to turn to God and to rest in Him. He has provided us with salvation and He can allow us to find rest in the midst of any storm we may be facing!
In the middle of it all, take time to rest in God!
Thank You for always being present and for being a source of rest and peace. Help me to remember to take time with You, even when I feel pulled in too many directions. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
