Communion · Rest · Trust · Wrestling

wresting with rest…

Another call to Sabbath…
one I didn’t want to hear…

It did not go well… from my perspective anyway…

Did work… that should’ve waited…
recruited others to help… when I should’ve let them rest…
self-indulged…
spent more time at wrest with Him… than at rest in Him…

And then today… the Monday following…
after a day of wrestling with rest…
He clears up much of my day…
hours in fact…

But you know what…?
The opportunity to work extra hours… brought no rest…
unmet expectations… (you know… the ones set too high…?)
left me feeling like a failure…
the work… did not fulfill…

The sun sets early these days…
and it feels like the day is done…

After a time with Him… remembering Him…

He reminds… There’s still time in the day…
Do not give up… or be dismayed…
because so much seems undone…

Trusting Him… to guide the evening hours…
because I’m not sure I did so great with the day…

Thank You Lord for Your strength to persevere…

…for darkness is as light with you.
Psalm 139:12 ESV
