Have you ever seen this notice on your computer screen? “Mouse batteries low”. I have been watching that little box on the right side of my computer screen for a couple of days now. I am trying to wait to change the batteries and hopefully squeeze out the last bit of energy from these batteries.
This reminds me of day to day life. There are times when we exhaust ourselves and know that we need to rest, relax and refresh. But, we keep on going, trying to squeeze one more thing, activity, appointment, “to-do” item on our list, and thinking that we will feel better when all the “things” are done.
Not true. When we get that feeling that our batteries our low, our bodies are tired, our minds are exhausted…. God is sending us a message. He is telling us that we need to rest. We need to share time with Him. We need to stop, even if just for a moment. Everything that we think needs to be done right this minute, will definitely be there after we take time to breathe, rest and renew in God.
Can you take some moments today and just breathe and relax? Can you thank God for His blessings? Blessings like the flower in the photo above, the breeze in the trees, the laughter of children and adults, the food and drink you will enjoy today, the laundry waiting to be washed, the love of family and friends and so much more…. I know you have your own list. Relax and think about your blessings… and don’t let your “mouse batteries get too low”.
Matthew 11:28 New International Version
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Blessings, and rest….
