I pray that you all had a great weekend!
I currently find myself extremely tired! Happy, but tired. My body doesn’t know how to act lol it’s so programmed to just go go go, now that I’ve taken a rest I almost can’t function! Usually I’m working, if I’m not working I’m writing, if I’m not writing I’m working on the KS line (which really is work lol), and if I’m not working on the line, I’m trying to make the website better. I’m just one of those people who don’t know how to sit down because I know that there’s always more work to be done. But I feel like I’ve hit that wall.
Going on Vaca, I promised myself that I would try to relax. I barely slept the first 2 days because of the time difference (and catching up with everyone), and yesterday I could barely keep my eyes open! So today, I’m trying to find a happy medium.
Sometimes when I have a lot going on I forget to allow myself time for reflection, for meditation. Meditation is very intimate for me, and after prayer is probably one of the things I love most. I often come out of meditation feeling refreshed and ready to once again take on the world. I could literally meditate for 15 minutes and come out with so much clarity when I went in confused….
So because of how exhausted I was, I finally got up and decided to meditate. Buuuttt right before I started I asked my older sister if she wanted to join me, since she always suggests her practices to me. (Like spinach and pineapple smoothies and natural herbs) Before I asked her I had doubts lol only because when I ask some individuals, they laugh at the idea. Over the years I have learned to only ask people who I think will be open to the experience and usually begin with guided meditation. Everyone has their own preconceived notions of what exactly meditation is and some think it’s silly. But she said YES! So about 15 minutes in, I’m feeling a little lighter and that lingering heaviness that accompanies tiredness is gone. I open my eyes and my sister is sleep lol like a deep sleep! I guess it worked for her because she is thoroughly relaxed.
Anyway lol at bible study last week Bishop said when we get a revelation, it’s for us first. I really believe that, especially this time around. So friends and fam, don’t get so tired that it becomes your natural state. It’s okay to take pause and have a few minutes for yourself. And last, rest easy knowing that God has your back.
I love you all and I leave you with this…
Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
