Orderliness and calm….a necessary Saturday catch-up goal but often not attainable in our busy lives. Activities and errands beckon us and keep us moving. Shabbat Shalom to all you moms…enjoy your “day of rest” rest no matter how that shapes up. May you grab some moments to catch your breath and perhaps slow down a bit at some point today. God always has something to reveal to us and it’s usually in those moments of rest when we can hear what He might be showing us and what He wants us to remember. When we focus on Him, we aren’t focusing on ourselves and oh that can be a rest while bringing everything else into its proper perspective. When our hearts are turned toward God, we are able to have a better perspective on all that calls us and those very things that cause us anxiety and stress. A proper rest allows us to focus on the One who is calling us to place our trust in His arms where we can find true peace, purpose, perspective and calm.
“Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
