The Rest

Ah, today I am resting. I'm sitting on my bed right now, and I do not intend to move from here for a couple hours at least. I'm tired. I've had several fast paced days, all of them good, all of them rewarding. Now, I am tired and I need some time to just be alone, pray, think, sleep. Rest, it's a good thing.
The sun is shining today, I've been waiting for a day like this for months now. So, later on, I'm going to go outside and soak up some sun, that's gonna be nice.
This morning, God spoke to my heart and directed me to Ephesians 6. The chapter starts out by instructing me to honor my Father and Mother, and if I do my days will be long upon the earth.  It was my reminder to call my mother, just to say "Hi", to practice honoring her in ways that God instructs me.
Later in the chapter it's all about putting on the Armor of God, which is Jesus Christ. He is our Armor. It reveals that God wants me to be strong, and He is strong. So, I am to take all that He has provided for me and put them to good use, then I will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws my way. I must take all that He offers me, so that when I am on the other side, I will still be on my feet, strong IN Him.
I cannot forget to pray. Prayer for others, prayer for myself, so that no one falls behind or drops out.  Prayer is my biggest and best weapon against the schemes of the enemy. Pray is restful.
So, as I rest, I will pray for His Armor to be tightly fit upon me.  I will pray for His wisdom, His leading hand, and His light. It is good, and through Him I am strong. This is God's adventure, and there is no turning back now. This is the life, full and alive In Him, and restful.
Say That Again, Jesus, life with You is full, adventurous, and restful. You have armored me.
