In Others’ Words: Sometimes
You ever have a week that felt like seven Mondays in a row? Or are you staring down a lo-o-o-ng Monday?
Was last week filled to the brim with frustration … or discouragement … or sadness? And now it’s the beginning of a new week and, oh look! you’re still frustrated or discouraged or sad.
Sometimes that’s just how the days roll. It’s not one huge, heartbreaking event. Nope. It’s the daily-ness. The busy-ness. The unrelenting sadness.
Sometimes you just have to take a nap and get over it.
Forget the trying and the doing and the being and allow yourself to rest.
Jesus invited weary people to rest (Matthew 11:28). The Message says to “Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.”
Maybe, just maybe, choosing to find time to rest today would be the wisest decision you make.
In Your Words: I find naps restful. What does rest look like to you? How would you fill in the sentence: Sometimes you just need to ___________________ and get over it.
