I’m giving this another try. 5 Minute Fridays, Take Two.
No editing. Just typing for 5 minutes straight on the subject of:
And I can’t help but smile at the topic for today as my post yesterday was about something similar: Exhaustion.
Since becoming a parent, I’m fairly certain I have used this word ‘tired’ every single day in one form or another.
“I’m soooo tired”
“I’m so tired of ____”
“Oh, he’s starting to show signs he’s tired.”
“I’m too tired to ______”
And I wonder: Since when did tiredness become a state of being?
I’m reminded of the verse in Matthew where Jesus offers help for those of us who are weary. burdened. He offers: “Take My yoke upon you…you will find rest”.
And I think: There He goes again — freely offering to take my place in exchange for His.
Today, I will humbly take Him up on His offer. I take His yoke–His place in line if you will and find myself in the presence of the King of Kings. I fall to my knees as I worship in this place
Where stress fades away
Where sickness finds relief
Where sleep comes easy
Where souls are refreshed
And I realize: Standing in the presence of Jehovah is the ultimate power nap.
Praising His Name transforms my own state of being. And being tired becomes but a memory.
Speaking of, thanks for sharing your time with me.
