Today I am thankful for weekends…
for lovely lazy Saturday mornings to renew and rest and Sundays to worship. I am thankful that my God knows my every weakness. He knows that I become tired and overwhelmed by life’s demands. It doesn’t bother Him in the least that I often remain in my pajamas until after lunch on Saturdays.
When His children work hard…physically, mentally and emotionally, during the week, I believe He calls us to a time of rest. In Him.
Saturdays are also my catch-up days…
housework, grading papers, sleeping….
I spend extra time my husband, FaceTime with my babies in South Korea, try to connect with Josh…see my Mom. Sometimes I actually cook on the weekends too. (Whatever….)
Weekends are the perfect opportunities for my extended Bible study. I can spend longer periods of time digging, reading, and journalling. I am renewed through my time with Him in these moments of unrushed simplicity…quiet…and soul-satisfying peace.
“But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.” Isaiah 40:31
Needing fresh strength that only time with my Father brings!
