These past two weeks have been a whirlwind of troubles. And I don’t know about you, but most of the time I end up worrying and fretting way too much instead of praying and trusting the Lord. Then one day, early in the morning like today, I decide to open my Bible app to see if the scripture of the day is one I can relate to, and behold! It’s Matthew 11:28. It’s THE perfect scripture!
I have been laboring and putting weights on myself for two weeks, fretting about pretty much everything, and how easily I forgot to just come unto the Lord. What a sweet, reassuring way He says it. Yesterday as I battled my own mind, I had the strongest urge to play piano, despite having a million things to do. I knew that if I could go play and sing songs unto the Lord I’d feel better, but I never did. Something else always came up.
Today, since I’m on Spring Break, I have plans with my sister and nephew to hang out. My introverted side tried to kick in last night about it, but this morning, waking up with the foggy dawn and birds chirping their happy little songs, I knew I had a decision to make. I can keep worrying and fretting and wearing myself ragged over circumstances, or I can choose to trust God with it and have an amazing day with my family. So today, I choose Jesus. Today, I choose joy. Today, I choose the energy, and laughter, and silliness, and imagination of a little boy. Today I choose conversation, reminiscing, and a short road trip with my sister. Today I choose to come unto the Lord. Today I choose rest.
