Sometimes there are seasons when you struggle to meet God, to dig into the Word. Life gets busy and messy, and while we’d love our routine to be the same in and out of season more often than not it just isn’t.
But still our hearts crave…even in the chaos we want and need Jesus.
Today I’m over at The Better Mom sharing a few things I’ve done in different seasons of life when the perfect “quiet time” was quite elusive. Click on over to read and share how you meet Jesus in the crazy.
Rest and I haven’t always played well together. It’s no secret. I’m always busy, rushing, juggling 5 to do lists at once. A lifetime of perfectionist, people pleasing tendencies are hard to shake.
A life of constant movement, always thinking, always doing seems productive for a time and then it takes its toll. I think my toll was topped somewhere back in 2006.
But this year I will be seeking to intentionally practice a lifestyle of rest.
Today I’m over at The Better Mom pondering on what rest looks like in a busy life and how do you even practice rest? Stop by and join the conversation: The Practice of Rest.
To stop doing, stop running, stop trying…but to just be.
I run from rest like a doe runs from the barrel of a shotgun. Stillness raises anxiety.
I don’t know why, but I always have to be doing.
But I’m tired…and I just want to live this one life well
To smile…genuinely smile. To enjoy life. To spread my wings and fly. To not be afraid of tears and pain. To embrace all of life.
I want to find
where my soul
a deeply, contented
This year I rest.
