Rest

I am not good at resting.

I love to sleep, I love to be with my friends, I love to do things that give me life and energy and hope–walking outside, painting, listening to worship music, reading a good story, watching movies with happy endings.

But I stick my fingers in too many things.  I get too involved, because I want to be involved in all these good things.  But I cannot do it.  I stretch myself too thin, and then I get tired.  And I cannot give as much of myself as I want to.  Because I am trying to give too much in too many places.

I need to practice the art of rest.  And of saying “no.”

I am a seeker. A doer. An encourager. One who loves. One who longs to be loved. One who desperately yearns to make a difference in this world.
