Good morning brothers and sisters. It is the end of the week. I don't know about you but this week was really tough. There was so much chaos and work was really hard this week. My partner and I had a massive amount of hard work and we worked really long hours to get the projects done in the time frame that the customer wanted. It has done a number on these old bodies. But praise the Lord, it is done. But yesterday as we finished the day, I got home and decided, I am going to get in the pool and just relax. I got my favorite float and in the pool I went. I was setting on the float just going around the pool and I felt peace, rest. Then Matthew 11:28-30 came to my mind and heart. 28- Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. See this week, I let the Holy Spirit control me and my thoughts and mouth and though I still walked through the storm, it was easier. And I didn't hurt anyone else because of my hurt. Jesus invites us to come to Him and He will control the storm. He will give you rest in the middle of it. 29- Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your soul.30- For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. And I did. I am learning from Jesus how to live my life and it is different. But those feelings that I once felt has not been here this time and I don't feel defeated. Floating around in that pool, recalling scripture and singing praise to my Lord and Savior has found this old girl ready for a new day. I slept better last night and woke up refreshed and ready for a new day. I didn't realize how just allowing the Holy Spirit to do what He needs to do, how it would leave me feeling. Come to Jesus and find the rest that you so much need. I promise it is worth it. Have a blessed day and rise up child of God, rise up!
