You’ve almost made it through another week. The weekend is moments away and, Lord willing, you’ll get to leave those responsibilities at work for a little while. Whether that is true or you will be keeping watch on the night shift this weekend or doing the vital work of raising little people or caring for elderly who have no idea that the weekend is supposed to equal rest, I’m praying you are able to exhale a little bit in a little while.
It is so important to trust the Lord enough to allow ourselves to pause and to rest. It’s so brave to believe He’s going to hold it all together while we let ourselves collapse when we need to. He alone is able. It is so necessary to look away for a little while that we might look back through a clearer lens.
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, make resting in the Father’s arms a priority this weekend. Maybe it will be five minutes behind a closed door or maybe it will mean turning the alarm off instead of going to the gym in the morning. Whatever it looks like for you, friend, find the courage to just be still and know He is God. Let Him sing over you and be reminded He has it all under control and we never did. He's got this. He is able.
In Christ alone,
