Rest at harvest

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

Even in the midst of a day of ministry it's possible to find rest.  We have to take God-opportunities where we can find them.  Friday I was in Lakeland for ministry all day but didn't have a hotel room to go back to.  We went to our friends Keith and Joy Conley's home at Keith's invitation, while waiting for Joy to get home from work so we could all go to dinner.  We were only there for about an hour but as soon as we got there I fell asleep in the recliner chair in the living room for about 30 minutes and it gave me the strength I needed for the rest of the time there.

Larry wisely suggested that since we've had such a packed weekend of ministry that we take this evening (Sunday evening) to rest.   I am looking forward to a great morning of harvest at Celebration Church...I know God is going to do great things this morning!  I'm expectant and can't wait to see what unfolds.

I'm also looking forward to a late afternoon/evening of rest.  God is so good to have afforded me this.  Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me.
