I actually wrote this post over a week ago, edited it, scheduled it to publish, and walked away. I got busy with life and forgot about it.
But this morning as I poured over the words I had written, God once again ministered to my heart.
I'm tired. Really tired. Maybe it's being 33 weeks pregnant. Maybe it's having two toddlers. Maybe it's just the cold temperatures and being stuck inside all day.
Or maybe it's more than that. Lately, I find my life feeling so chaotic. I just want to schedule, organize, and plan everything. I want my life to fit in neat little boxes, and instead it comes in the form of overflowing laundry baskets and backed up sinks (yes...sinks...plural).
However, this morning as I read the devotional I was once again reminded that even in the messiest, busiest times in life I can have rest. I just have to make myself stop long enough to embrace it.
Sometimes it's easy to look into a blogger's online life and think they have it all together. But the truth is, I think God's given me this opportunity to write, not because I have anything profound to say but because I need to listen more than most.
And really, it's hard to argue with yourself.
So if you get a chance I'd love for you to stop by Coffee for the Soul and hear what God is saying to me today. Who knows? Maybe you need to hear it too.
