There are times when the demands of the day are just so exhausting. We diligently strive to take care of those around us that we often forget to take care of ourselves. Our days are filled with serving others; our husbands, our children, our parents, friends, co-workers, and even strangers. And when we fail to meet the needs others, or when we have to disappoint a loved one, we wrongly blame ourselves for not doing enough.
Today, Lord, we ask that you bless our body with rest. Only you can renew our spirit and cleanse our body from all the guilt, bitterness, resentment, and fatigue that has plagued us. We ask that you allow us to rest in you and bask in your glory. Lord, we believe fully in the promise that within your presence you will restore our body, mind and spirit. You are an awesome God.
"And the Lord said, My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest." Exodus 33:14
