I’m not sure about you but rest doesn’t always come easily for me. As a goal oriented person, I’m typically working on the next project, next job, next assignment, and the list is never ending. I’m writing and re-writing my ideas, to-do’s and dreams, and I rarely rest.
As a matter of fact, this Saturday was the first time that I can remember since February that I sat down and watched a movie on the television. I know it seems a bit odd, but when I was determined to finish writing my novel, my tv watching/relaxing days went out the window.
I enjoyed the break this weekend. I needed it. Mentally I am drained, and emotionally I’m teetering on discouraged. I have so many ideas and dreams, but no one idea/dream is actually moving the needle forward currently, and I’m feeling a bit down. It’s time to work out another 90 day goal, I need to write about my year long experience getting up before dawn, and I need to finish editing a novel so I can force someone to fall in love with it. I mean, so I can pitch it with passion to an editor who will publish it.
But I am struggling. Even trying to figure out what to blog about to encourage you my friends and readers was a challenge for me today. So instead I just decided to be real and hopefully whatever difficulty you face today, the reality that we are all struggling to move forward maybe will be an encouragement.
My pause has become connected to one of the projects the Lord started with me this year. My pause has ministered more to me than anything, and I just love that sometimes the Lord uses it to bless others. In just a few days, it will be almost 6 months into this project. I had no idea I could do this for this long, or that it would be a blessing to others.
So today I want to share a page again that maybe will bless you too – and maybe you’ll find a place to pause and to reflect on God’s goodness and provision for us. These words encouraged me today and I hope they can encourage you also!
