Perhaps it is Time to Take a Rest

My glory is sometimes a mystery which I unfold in tiny glimpses along the way because it is too brilliant to behold all at once. Train yourself to step forward in patient trust, day by day. I will not give you too much to handle without equipping you. Your life should not involve more than you can bear; I don’t work that way. If you are feeling overburdened, perhaps it is simply time to take a rest. Self-care is just as essential as tending to others. Do not neglect the care of your vessel.

Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

Trying to Be So On Top of Things

There will be time enough for everything. You get so tangled up in worries that you’ll forget an important detail, trying to be so on top of things all the time. Its exhausting watching you strive this way, often mistaking your regimens as being what I ask of you. I call for BALANCE. Rest is part of that balance. You don’t have to fear not being ‘productive’ all the time. Come play with Me and take time to attend to all the facets of yourself. It all fits into My grand plan for you. Find me as you rediscover what you love and unearth treasures you forgot you had all along.

Your Weariness Needs Attention

Why do you berate yourself so much? Nothing you have done will make Me turn My back on you. Breathe in My light by closing your eyes and becoming aware of My constant, loving companionship. I cherish you! Your weariness needs to be attended to. Find rest and store up trust for the days ahead. As you become more practiced in the art of releasing concerns and worries to Me, you will find I attend to each item and this allows you to rest even more deeply and thoroughly. Both rest and action must be honored for your spiritual growth.

Rest for Your Body, Soul and Mind

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

Be Strengthened to Manage

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.

Listen to the Stillness

It is so important, yet rare, that you take the time for quieting. Listen to the stillness of this moment. Absorb it, opening your mind to this simplicity, – then you can hear My great voice. Today, be freed just to listen with no expectations placed on you. I call you to truly rest and bask in the quiet. You don’t have to always be productive in order to be loved by Me. Practice the art of meditation today. Be still and know that I am God. Know Me. Know I Am. Just be still.

Take Time to Just BE

When the world gets busy around you, stop to concentrate on being Light-filled. Rest your weary head as I lift the weight of the world off your shoulders, knowing I hold you in the palm of My hand. Allow Me to ease tension as you focus on clearing out your mind. See My Light filling you. These blissful moments with Me are very real, and meant to build and restore you as you take time to just BE.

Attentive to Needs Beyond Your Own

Today I ask you to concentrate on doing good things for others. It takes effort to listen well, being focused and attentive to needs beyond your own. If you take one interaction at a time, by the end of the day you will be able to see that what was accomplished was enough. Take periods of rest, too. It’s okay to not overextend yourself. I am teaching you dependence upon Me, and learning to pace yourself is part of that education. I desire for you to live in peace, and not to be taking on too much that will overwhelm you. All is and can be well.

You Long for Time Alone and Rest

I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.
