The week is finally over; here's how we made it.
|Exhausted on Monday.|
|Fatigued on Friday.....|
When we look back at our week, we can clearly see the Lord's hand at work in our lives despite the week's difficulties. Moses looked back at the sea he crossed and saw that the crossed on dry ground. Daniel looked back at his bed in a lion’s den. Despite the fact that Moses and God's people were being hotly pursued by their enemy, God had made a way. Despite the fact that Daniel had been thrown into a dark den full of hungry lions, he remained intact.
|Spent on Saturday.|
If we look back at our week we can witness with awe and wonder the Lord's hand at work. Even though Terence has not had energy (all week) to join us for family dinners (at home) or join in on all the fun prep time for a family BBQ, or just be 'around' when the kids and I are all outside mowing the lawn, or helping me with my patio garden floor project :) while having glass of iced tea- The Lord has still shown Himself in a mighty way by providing for us and keeping us close to one another during this season. And Terence is getting some good rest. He and I talked about allowing himself to rest, and not feel guilty. I suggested he just rest, and rely on the Lord to restore his body through rest. So he rested his weary body this week.
So we finished the week- still sane and still intact (somewhat. I sliced my fingers with a knife today!). We try to remember that Jesus finished His week with victory- and if he can, we can too because can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Phil. 4:13).
He's how me made it.
Matthew 11:28-30 The Message
Jesus said,"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
