On Sunday, I already had begun to dread the next couple of weeks.
I have a jam-packed schedule this week - working all week, plus three nights. I speak on Saturday and have an open house on Sunday and that's before the next week when my boss is gone. (And that involves lots of hours and added responsibility.)
So far this week has gone pretty nicely - one snafu, but nothing I couldn't handle.
Which makes me think that I need to rest more in the Lord.
Here are some verses that have brought me comfort amid hairy schedules:
"They who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings as eagles, They shall run and not be weary; They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31.
“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.
Many times, I've simply prayed "Lord, please carry me" and he has always been faithful to do so.
I think I just need to remind myself of those times.
We serve a loving, faithful God!
We can trust him!
