Then Rests My Soul…

What a week it has been.  I was  continually finding myself near exhaustion at the end of the day. My daughter had come down with a cold and it was lingering in my own system.  The weather had  drastically been cold and rainy one day and then warm and sunny the next.  It’s ever a bother that my body never adjust to random spouts of hot and cold very well.

Tuesday was a planned night out with the ladies in my life group but because of my daughter’s cold, we had to put that on hold. I was a bit let down that this planned date wasn’t able to happen but more concerned with the fact that my daughter needed me home to care and love on her. I know that being two years old and not feeling well the best medicine is plenty of rest and mommy’s loving care.

Thursday, my daughter was over her cold and my husband and I were blessed with the opportunity to be ministered and encouraged at the Life Group leader get together for the year.  Great things are yet to come as we express the essence of Jesus through our church and the leading of our small groups to those around us. How encouraged I am to be part of such challenging radical movement! How we all should be people of mission together fueled by the Holy Spirit as we love God, love people, and serve the world.

…And though there were days this week where my soul became weary and my heart discouraged,  spending time daily talking with God in prayer and coming to His word my tired body, mind, and soul was once again renewed in Him…in his Loving Grace and in His encouraging reminders of the promises He daily pours  into my life.

The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD wil keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in
from this time forth and forevermore.

-Psalm 121:5-8
