Rest that is.
This past week we had VBS (Vacation Bible School) at our church. On the left is a picture of me with some of my students. I'm the tall one.
We had fun, but it was exhausting. By the time Sunday night came along I was totally spent.
So yesterday I didn't do much. The weather was gorgeous and I should have been sitting outside, but I do not have a comfy reclining couch outside. I stayed inside and sat (and enjoyed the weather from inside) on our comfy reclining indoor couch!
God's work often comes in fits and spurts followed by rest. He knows what we are made of. In Isaiah 40:6 God says "all flesh is grass" and lest we didn't get that reference He says it a different way in the very next verse. He says, "Surely the people are grass."
Jesus Himself says He'll give rest to the "weary and heavy-laden" if they come to Him.
I'm thankful we serve a God who knows us so well.
