Off!

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that I slept really well, Sunday night!

For this, I praise God!  Hallelujah!

As I said yesterday, I didn't have to set my alarm to be woken up Monday morning.

When I awoke, I thought to myself, that I needed to get moving!  But, then my phone rang, and I didn't really get moving.

In fact, after having several phone calls, I thought about what I had planned to do for the day.  And, realized that I didn't truly need to do it.

Well, I do need to get some paperwork done.  And, some bookkeeping. 

But, I didn't really need to get it done that day!

So, I thanked God for letting me realize this.  And, decided to just take the day... off!

Why? 

Because, even though I had slept in... and even though I woke up feeling I needed to do something, I felt tired.  Worn out.  Needing rest.

While thinking about how I was feeling, a Bible verse came to mind.  It was Matthew 11:28, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

You probably aren't aware, but I have truly been heavy laden with things to do, within several weeks before Christmas. 

I prayed for Him to help me do all that I needed to do.  And, He did.  He helped me get everything done that I needed to do.

And, gave me the strength to get through it all!

Yes, I've quoted that verse in the past.

And, probably will again at some point, in the future.

But, as I said, I truly felt like I needed rest.

So, instead of doing any work, I decided to just read my Bible. 

Then, later I made and received some phone calls.  And, I sort of took the day... off.

I rested...

For this, I am truly thankful.  God provided for me!

He also lifted me up, and encouraged me. 

All through this time of rest!

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
