Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:1-3
This week has been hectic and I'm feeling a bit worn and tattered! Can anyone relate? I'm sure many of you are in the same boat.
My family and I are still trying to get into the school routine. Up early, to bed late, too many activities starting all at one time and my kids want to go to each one! Then there is pay for this, pay for that, then try to do your regular job on top of all that. Woe. I am exhausted. And, we are commuting an hour back and forth so the car ride alone has me worn out this week.
So, for today's blog I am focusing on relaxing. Just the word relax makes me feel better. :)
|This is cute and made me laugh.|
A heart at peace gives life to the body...Proverbs 14:29-31
It is rare our situations change quickly. We have to find ways to live within our situations and still find peace.
What situation is causing your life to be hectic?
For my family it is commuting that seems to be never ending. We are very close to closing on a house in the town we work in, but now that even looks like it might fall through!
All four of us in the car driving to school and work each day has the potential to leave everyone edgy. Kids are tired, dad is not a morning person, mom is overwhelmed with too many tiny details demanding her attention...you can see the potential fire hazard! (It is imperative we get moved soon, but evidently God has another plan.)
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness... Galatians 5:21-23
My best defuser is Jesus. If I can carve out time to spend with my bible, and listening to the Lord, I'm a better person. Sundays at church are a blessing and feed my soul, but my quite time refuels me more than anything.
So, this weekend, try to relax. You owe it to yourself and your family. And, things always have a way of working out. Have peace that God is in control. Give it to Him and take a break from controlling the universe. (Y'all know I'm preaching to the choir right?) Grab your bible and a cup of coffee and enjoy some time with Jesus this weekend. He adores you!
How do you relax on the weekends?
A good song to help you relax! Enjoy.
