“So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed. On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.” (Genesis 2:1-3 NLT)
Hello family, sometimes we can get so full up and wrapped up in our day to day, week to week schedules that we forget to take the time to sit down and have a day to rest. We are not designed to go 24/7/365! If we try to do that we will crash! We sometimes pack our lives with activities that we think are important but in reality God is telling us to pull back from them or stop completely!
Yes it is good to do volunteer work and it is good to be involved in little league sports but if these things keep you so busy that you can’t stop and have a day to rest and let God pour into you then you will be of no use when God truly wants to use you! God has programmed our body to send us warning signs that we need to stop and replenish what we have lost. If these warning signs go unanswered God will shut us down and it will be a shut down that will have lasting effects! Slow down now! Hear the warning signs that God is sending you! Don’t get shut down! Sit down with God and ask Him to prioritize the things that are really important and eliminate the things that are not necessary so you can slow down, take care of yourself and rest!
Much Love & God Bless
