“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
You set your alarm for 6:15 with the intention with starting your day off productively. “Yes, today will be the day I shower and still have time to make a breakfast full of all the nutrients that will give me the best day possible. I am a great woman warrior of this day!”
“Okay so I’ll take a five minute shower and grab a protein bar for the road… still a solid B start to my day.”
“Oh I need to leave, like, NOW… change the pants and we’re off!”
How do you feel after starting a day like that? Yes you might have caught up on some extra rest, but do you feel completely rested to your core?
What if we were intentional about starting our day out with a full body experience of rest. What if we took a moment to make sure we are feeling our best all the way down to our souls?
There’s something to behold in those early hours with the first rays of sunlight. Enjoy a cup of coffee, read your Bible, and write in a journal; it can be a great way to have a few quiet moments with God. How lucky are we to GET to wake up and SEE the light? Before all the stresses of your day start to get to you, just take a moment.
Thank the Lord for all you have and offer up the things you are struggling with. Empty the worries of your soul. Take those precious moments for rest so you can give your day the 100% it deserves.
