Take that time of rest. But sometimes the relief doesn’t come right away. You have to wait for the project to pass, the meds to kick in, the healing to take place, the move to happen or new job to start, Lord knows there are a lot of stressors! It can be so easy to sit back and just let it happen to us, to wait for God to take care of it. Well, more often than not He is giving us tools to deal and cope with the situation on our own so we can learn from it and grow.
Darn parenting technique.
So while we wait, might as well use those tools. Might as well do some moving of our own–and usually that moving will bring us closer to Jesus.
Again, darn parenting technique. He is good. Well played God. Well played.
It’s not always easy being His child, but it is so worth it.
