Five Minute Friday – Rest

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Rest.

Five Minute Friday



Sometimes I get so caught up in all the things I think I am supposed to do. Running here and there. Barely stopping to breathe. There are so many things I WANT to do. Places I want to be, people I want to support. I could run myself ragged trying to help.

Then God catches me. And says, I’ve got this. Do just what I have asked to you to do. And then rest. Take a breath.

He wants me to be a part of His plan. He wants me to reach out to the world. He wants me to care about my friends and the world around me. But He doesn’t expect me to do it all. That’s me. I am learning to stop and rest in His grace and mercy. At least I am trying to. The worries keep pulling at me, but I am learning to stop and breathe and ask Him to carry them and just show what task He has for me today. Just do the next thing, knowing that my God can handle everything else.


One thought on “Five Minute Friday – Rest

  1. I have added the word no back to my vocabulary this year in order to be more able to focus on the areas that He is calling me to. It is harder than I expected it to be but the rest, true heart rest has also been sweeter than I expected.
