Resting

Yesterday morning, I began the day with an asthma attack.

Although I’m super thankful for my nebulizer, I was sad to have to use it.

It’s been a long time since it’s been needed.

My day, therefore didn’t look like what I had planned.

Jase had to work his school mostly on his own.

Meals were leftovers, reheated.

(Praise God for our microwave and the leftovers!)

My asthma didn’t allow much, but I was glad to be on the couch instead of the bed.

When I got up this morning, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Praise the Lord, I’m breathing pretty well.

I’m still sluggish and slow, but so thankful to God for the ability to do a few little things.

And I’m enjoying the opportunity to pray more.

When my activities slim down, my heart finds it easier to remain in prayer.

So, I’m praising God for His rest.

I hadn’t scheduled it for today or yesterday, but since it’s required why chaff at putting off my own plans?

Instead, I’m embracing God’s.

After all His ways are best.

Isaiah 2:3 NKJV β€” Many people shall come and say, β€œCome, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, To the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, And the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your plans for each day. Lord, I know there is so much sin and wickedness in the world that we can often forget how much good there is as well. After all, You are good and You are far bigger than Your creation. Thank You for holding us in Your hands and walking us forward into Your truths. Lord, please help us to live for You in our actions, our thoughts, and our attitudes. Lord, please let our mouths be full of Your praise, our hearts full of Your love, and our minds full of Your truth. Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
