(Old Post from 2007)
As I move ever closer to the much needed rest time from ministry, I find myself searching and seeking for it. I find that I am more diligent about my reading time, and refrain from turning the tv on for a little while so that I can stop and read.
This morning (Sunday), I was sitting in Jr. High writing a prayer to God, and realized how tired I was, as I did not sleep good last evening. I look outside as the dark storm clouds move ever closer to our location, and I ponder the stillness of today for a little while longer.
I wrote this prayer this morning, just trying to get my head around my own thoughts about life right now:
“Lord, How I find myself in the midst of a personal and inhuman crisis. The past begins to surface, the thoughts of mistakes gone by keep replaying in my head, my body weary from the constant tug of war. The struggle between the good and bad parts wage within me and I realize that I have been more concerned with doing and not being. May I find rest at the foot of the cross, realizing that I need to be whole before you and running into your outstretched arms.”
May you find rest today.
