A Moment To Praise 3.23.20
Do you have a moment to praise with me today? I sure hope so!
Hope that your weekend was blessed and that you are all healthy and coping as best as can be expected! I am praying for you all daily!
I have seen so many people on social media or the television say that they are tired of this. I’ve said it myself, “I can’t wait until this is over!” You know, I have had a little rant about it, a little pity party for myself! Can any of you relate? Where can I go for refreshing news or thoughts? Where can I go when I’m spent, exhausted, or tired?
Forgive me while I digress for a moment. The phrase “I’m tired!” always makes me giggle to myself. Let me explain. As some of you know, I lead the littlest of worshipers at Gravel Hill in the Kidz Choir. We practice weekly and it’s usually a fun, raucous time; that is until we get to the serious stuff of rehearsing! Then the moans and groans start. What do I hear the most? I hear complaints of “…but Miss Joyce, I’m too tired to stand up!” Of course I and my helpers always make a joke about them being “oh so tired” and move on with the practice. But secretly, I must admit that some days, I feel exactly the same way…tired!

Jesus says to give our burdens over to Him and He will give us rest. Physical rest? Maybe. Emotional rest? Certainly. Let’s take our concerns, our fears, our anxieties and the like and turn them over to Him. Speak it out loud and call upon His name! Lay them all down at His feet. He promises rest, as well as peace!
