(Old Post from 2007)
About four months ago, I decided that it was time to take a break from ministry and rest. I had been pushing hard and I was tired. Well. . .three months later – I appear to be just as busy (although, I do get to go to church later on Sunday am), but I think that is simply because it is the Christmas season.
It seems that many people have been hit with a case of insomnia – myself included. I am realizing that my brain is going so fast, and is trying to keep pace with so many different things, that I am actually prohibiting my body from resting. I am pushing hard in trying to lose weight (successful), but at the same time my body is not resting. Sometimes we just have to step back and STOP. For me that is the hardest thing. I like to be busy, I like to be milling about, but I also enjoy moments of solitude. For example, this morning I needed some alone time – so I went to the gym. It has been about a week or so since I have had a really good workout (sick and all), and I just needed my space. Granted the gym was full of people, but the fact was is I could put my headphones on and escape into the world of only weights and random songs on my iPod shuffle.
So for me. . .I guess I will be more deliberate with my rest, after the hustle and bustle of Christmas has passed. Hey what can I say, I'm a procrastinator!
