Daily. Weekly. Monthly. Yearly.
And the days add up and go by. And we just keep plugging away...
Vacation. Escape. Rest. A break.
Ahh, just to coast a bit...
I woke yesterday at 5a.m. For the fourth day in a row, thinking about work, problems, patients, coworkers, schedules, education, lists, duties, should-do things. Then I told myself that early morning wakening is a sign of anxiety (and racing thoughts) and I tried to mentally kick work out of my mind. I rebelled against a to-do list for my stay-cation, though often they energize me. I felt in my depths that it might crush me if I didn't learn to UNPLUG!
It took me full day.
But today was Sabbath.
And Jesus whispered to me--"I never ran away. I never escaped. I found a quiet place, so I could run to my Father. I plugged-into the Father's presence. I sat still in His presence."
Wow. A rush of God's love.
Release from the demands of life's rat race. And that wasn't all, He said more...
"You act as if you only have access to Me on vacation. I'm here every Sabbath. Everyday. You need only to plug-in and--Be Still. Know that I am God."
Thankfully God doesn't need a cruise or a Florida beech to download His love, peace, and strength to us!
Psalms 46:10 "He says, Be still, and know that I Am God."
