When and where do you get quiet time in your life? We all have commitments and responsibilities and if we run ourselves into the ground just trying to keep up, we eventually become weary and ineffective at many things. The key is to find some balance, to prioritize, we can’t be all things to all people. This is why the story or analogy of the big rocks, the pebbles and the sand in a bucket hits home with so many people. We know that if we spend all our time on the sand and pebbles we will never get to the big rocks in life. For me this analogy is all about balance. Sometimes we can say yes and sometimes we need to say no or not right now…Jesus set the example for us, while He spent time teaching and speaking to the people He also would go off alone to pray and spend time with God our Father for hours…balance. Take time and rest in Him. Amen.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
