In our family, we started a NEW tradition. We love going to New York City to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The last time we were there, we went to see the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. One of the cool parts of their show is when they form a human PINWHEEL and rotate it onstage…like the blades of a fan.
The girls at the very end of the line struggle and have to take REALLY BIG steps, in order to keep up. But, it was interesting to me, how the girls in the center barely even moved.
The closer we are to JESUS (our center) the less we have to struggle. In fact, it’s practically effortless!
By stressing and not resting, we are overestimating our own ability to control the situation and UNDERESTIMATING God’s power to handle things. Most of the time, it’s just dumb stuff, anyway, that keeps us awake at night.
Sleep is good for us. Sleep is healing. Not just physical rest…. but SOUL rest! We have to trust in Him…and sometimes that’s HARD!
Start by giving Him the little stuff, and then, work your way up to the BIG stuff.
We don’t have to wear all the CARE. Let it go! Leave all your worries at the feet of the Lord. It’s out of our hands!
Is there something stressing you that you should let go of?
