"Resting in Him"
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
As a wife, mother, and caretaker, I have little time for rest and relaxation. The demands of caring for everyone else can take a toll on me emotionally and physically, which I found out first hand here recently. I reached a point where I couldn't sleep and my emotions were in constant turmoil. I became sick with a intestinal bacterial infection and before my illness I had begun to think I couldn't handle the stresses of daily life. I had even agreed to put my Mother-in-Law in a nursing home.
However, after praying and seeking God, I realized I hadn't come to him for rest or allowed myself to take a break. I wasn't using the resources available to me. Once I saw my mistake, I promised myself to rest and relax. I gave myself permission to ask for help. I knew I had to care myself and rest in Him so I could be an effective servant for Him.
I am happy to report that I am on the road to recovery and my Mother-in-Law is still with us. I know she is meant to be here. God tells us to provide for the widowed, especially family. I cannot turn my back on her in her time of need simply because I wasn't listening to my Father, who says to come to him for rest.

“We have not
because we ask(pray) not”
The goals and dreams in your heart come from God. You may not be ready, but don’t quit praying. God will get you ready. Your dreams and goals will come. Never give up. He put them there for a reason.
