As summer approaches, I have mixed feelings. I am ready for a break, but I also will miss my students and hope that they find productive ways to learn and time to relax over the summer. When the fall comes, I will have a new group of students that I will get to know and teach. Because of the summer break, I will have a chance to prepare and be ready to face the challenges and joys of a new year!
God is always there for us and we should continually communicate with Him and follow His will. However, God also understands that there are times when we need a break, a chance to relax in His comforting hands as we prepare for the next steps of our journey. God gave us the example of resting on the 7th day. We should follow His advice as we rest and worship Him. With God's comfort, we can have a well rested soul that is prepared for the challenges and joys of sharing God with the world!
Take a break in the safety of God as you worship and prepare for the next steps of the journey!
Thank You for the opportunity to take a break and to regroup and be revitalized in You. Help me to move forward with enthusiasm and love as I share You with others in the world. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
