I feel like I am running to nowhere... taking step after step, and finding myself stuck in one place... never moving ahead. I am dry... and the tension in me is growing. The little squares on my calendar are filled with appointments, commitments and lessons... places to be, items that need to be checked off. When I peek ahead to April I see that there is no relief in sight. I am more than tired... exhaustion is setting in.
I long to rest.
To just be.
And there doesn't seem to be a blank square to schedule that in.
Perhaps I just need to put that eraser to work... and create a free day.
But a free day is only free if the chores are done...
For today... my only hope for rest comes in the form of prayer.
For a few moments, I will curl up in the palm of God's hand... and find refreshment. He will carry me through... He will lend me His strength... and if I stop long enough for a breath, I will feel His gentle touch brush the tears from my eyes...
