Sleep…because when you wake, the work will still be there. 


SLEEP….On this topic still, I never used to understand what my husband meant when he said, “Sleep. Because when you wake, the work will still be there.”

Finally, one day it clicked. And when I labour too far into the night, I know I must give it to God. Rest in obedience and know that when I wake, the work will still be there. To serve, to love, to teach grace.

• PRAYER •

Lord, You are the giver of rest. Help me trust that You have everything under control, and that my job is not to juggle everything, but to hand all of my burdens over to You, the all-powerful, able, strong God. * * *
