For the past week and a half, I’ve been off the radar so to speak.
Life got busy and I didn’t know whether I was coming or going on most days.
Do you ever have days like that? Or weeks? Months?
Life always tugs at us. The immediate and urgent takes over.
I, for one, find myself irritable and exhausted when I try to get everything done.
I want things completed, and I want things done right. Unfortunately, I, like so many other wives and mothers across this great country, feel if I don’t do the task(s) it won’t be done correctly.
I find myself faltering.
This is not what my heavenly Father calls me to do.
He does not want me struggling for perfection in a world that will always be broken and imperfect.
My focus has been in the wrong place.
What He really wants is for me to abide in Him. He will give me rest.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 NIV
That is what I really need.
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. John 15:4 NIV
