What I'm learning more and more about lately is finding moments of rest in between the moments of chaos that happens to be life at times.
It's funny cause I used to think that being busy was a good thing. When my social calendar was full, I was happy...when my work schedule was full, I was stressed...when my day timer was running out of hours, I felt important.
Over the last 2 years I've felt God leading me to find rest and to learn how to re-discover Sabaath in my own life. It's during these moments of rest that I have learned more about life, love, God and truth than any other time-burning, schedule over-loading practice, appointment or conference ever has.
Despite these lessons, I still find myself craving the busy of life. I think it's because I've come to define myself by having what I thought was a "full life." But I'm sometimes not so sure that this full life that I crave is what Jesus intended for me to have. Jesus came to grant us life to the full, but somehow I'm not sure His definition of full included a full dance card of important "meetings" with people who told you how great you are or others who want to give you a piece of their mind.
Life to the full...it's an interesting concept and one that includes more rest than we think, so I'm learning at least.
