Restless verses restful thinking

20140301-100718.jpg

I am sure that if you are like me, your thoughts are often filled with things related to challenges at work, home and life. My mind is often filled with restless verses restful thinking.

I have found most of my days and many of my night’s are filled thinking about such things. I love what I do and I love doing it with others who love doing it too!

That said, I appeal to you, as I appeal to myself, to consider the perspective that there is really only one who is worthy of consuming my thoughts and time so consistently, his name is Jesus.

I don’t feel guilty for loving the tasks he has given me. In fact I am grateful! But if I am not careful, I can become so preoccupied with the things I want to do for Jesus that I stop being with Jesus.

Jesus says his yoke is light. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like the yoke I am carrying is very heavy. So heavy I worry about how I will carry it or accomplish the task.

Jesus said come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.

He calls on us to rest and renew our minds and our strength in him.

I love my life and I love working. God is doing amazing things among us but nothing is greater than the personal and meaningful relationship he desires to have with each of us.

By all means don’t quit thinking about all you hope to accomplish and never stop trying to be your best, but may we also be ever mindful of the one who has called us, loves us and desires to join us in the battle and the journey.

I heard this week that anxiety is brought on by imagining the future without Jesus in it. Surely he is with us today, tomorrow and forever. No wonder He so desired for peace to be with us for he knew we are prone to wonder from his presence.

You are greatly loved and appreciated by God. Your skills and abilities were created for this very moment in time. How fun to work and play together in this calling!

Rest in him this weekend and come back Monday ready to be a world changer once again!

Love and peace to all!
