When It Is Time to Rest

I presented this week to staff at the agency that serves Caleb...who has been featured in my blog the past 6 days.  I had this presentation scheduled several months ago -- long before I heard about the "write 31 days" challenge.  Coincidence?  I think not...

But it has been exhausting to relive such pain...and I also believe that the enemy hates when we are engaged in activity that glorifies God and is on the offense.  And tonight, I am tired.

Now...I could be worshiping the idol of affirmation/approval and plow through and write another article tonight...but my heart would not be in it.  Instead, I renew my mind and listen...
And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.  Genesis 2:2-3
Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.  Psalm 116:7
Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him.  For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. Psalm 103:13-15 
 So tonight my hands are quiet and restful...and I rejoice in all that God has done for me.
