How often do we ignore the physical signs that God is giving us, to slow down? Many times we attempt to push through exhaustion by using the excuse that we don’t have time to slow down. We drink more coffee, get less sleep, and cram as much into our days as possible. I am the first one to admit this has been happening to me. The last few weeks have been a full schedule of many high stress deadlines to meet. We can all related to having responsibilities, but often times we take on too much. There must be time to refresh. There must be time to prioritize your family. As we begin this week, may we all make sure we take the time to nurture your spiritual and physical well being. Seek God in a deeper level of conversation and prayer. Pay more attention to your family. Allow yourself time to simply rest for a while. Settle into the arms of Jesus, and take comfort in feeling His presence. This will rejuvenate your spirit, and give peace to your soul.

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. PSALM 62:1

Jesus said: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” JOHN 14:27

God is with us.
