Need Rest ?

It is Sunday. I got up, went to church, praised Jesus, went to eat and then came home to relax the rest of the day. As I am sitting here I feel as though I have allowed opportunity to pass me. Opportunity to speak life into dead situations. Then I asked myself, why?

Why do we deem more necessary our own time then that needed by another? As a Chaplain for a big organization I have learned to always be ready for the unexpected. To be studied up in the Word, to be prayed up in the spirit, and to be rested up in the flesh as much as possible.

Recently my husband and I took a mission trip to Nogales, Mexico. It was there where I got neither very little sleep nor very little time to self. However, I received a blessing in knowing that God had purposed my days to be there and to meet lost people who so desperately needed a touch from Him.

Before leaving I was a tad overworked and under rested and somewhat complaining that I needed rest. Do you know what Gods’ response to me was? “You’ll rest when you come up here, but for now it is time to work.”

Dear loved ones, do not fret when life is pressing on and your obedience is needed to accomplish Godly purposes. I have learned that my body does not need as much rest as I once believed. I have discovered that secret place in the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91) where rivers of living water flow and still waters restore my soul. “The fields are white but the laborers are few. (John 4: 35) I count it a privilege to be considered a laborer for the Lord. For now, I will roll up my sleeves and work, for rest will come when my work is accomplished and pleasing unto my Lord Jesus Christ.
