“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Today, I started my day off wonderful. I went to class, got lunch with my handsome fella and then sat down to write and do homework. Then, suddenly, I felt a horrible pain in my shoulder. My leg then had a sharp pain, and I felt dizzy.
Soon I was sitting in the Health Center, waiting to find out what the heck was going on with me. I was angry, I was sore, and I was very distraught. As the doctor examined me, he seemed stumped. He asked me about my job, my school work, and my free time. After the questions he knew what was wrong and didn’t waste time in telling me that I needed to slow down. I was struggling with stress.
He suggested taking some time to relax, along with over the counter pain medication. I was more than annoyed than ever before. Then I remembered the verse above, and tried to breathe. Matthew 11:28 was something that I needed to remember today. I was weary, I was sick, and I was in desperate need of God.
Rest was hard to come by, as I was in a lot of pain, but after spending some time in prayer I was able to go to sleep for awhile. I woke up sick to my stomach but thankfully David was there to made dinner for me. We talked, prayed together, and then he put me to bed to spend the rest of the night resting.
So, here I am, laying in bed surrounded by cats, writing and watching Netflix. I’m thanking God for the night of relaxation as I get ready for a night of great sleep.
Remember guys, we always have rest in the Lord, and He will always be there for us. Even when our bodies begin to break down. He just wants us to come to him, to trust him, and know that he will always have our backs.
