Last week was a time to unwind. unplug. undo the knots that can leave us twisted up inside if we don’t take time to take time.
So we gave ourselves a chance to breathe. We gave up the fast pace so we could slow down and receive the gift that comes to us when we come to Him.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Sometimes, it’s ok to be a taker. Because when we accept His grace – when we allow ourselves to be renewed and re-fueled by the Giver of all good things – only then do we have the energy and the means to give to others.
Dear Lord, help us know when it’s time to give and when it’s time to take. Restore us. Renew our spirits. Let us find in you the rest we need. Amen.
