Switching Gears--A Time To Rest
If you look to the bottom right of this picture you see what looks like a dot. It's a pelican. A lone pelican on the vast ocean, surrounded by water.
Have you ever felt like this little guy?
Have you ever felt like a little dot in the mix of a huge life, surrounded by oceans and oceans of things to do? And you feel like you're being swallowed up by all that business and craziness that is this world?
If the answer is yes, you are not alone. I know I've felt that way many times and so have many others.
But just how do we fix it all?
How do we switch gears and try to balance all the business and craziness and do all the things we need/want to do?
Well, I have no quick fix. No sound advice like making lists and stuff like that. (I don't do lists well, although I am learning--and I'm completely unorganized!)
But the one thing I do know is that we can rest. Yes, rest. Rest in the God who created us in His image. Rest our hearts and minds on the good things of Him.
We are never truly alone. We always have Jesus---he's living inside us, waiting for us to call on Him.
Some days it's the only thing keeping me sane.
What about you? Crazy days? Crazy life? We'd love to know we aren't the only ones.
