Sometimes it is easy to get stuck in routine.
When you go from rushing from one place to other, it is so easy to take some time just sitting on my tush watching TV – which I LOVE.
Of course, then I feel like I have wasted the hours away…and I have. I have taken my precious time to sit and watch other people on TV spend their time traveling, adventuring, living life together!
In the Bible when God rested on the 7th day, it wasn’t because He needed it, it was to be an example for us.
For true rest we must first go to Him. If He can breathe the world in to existence, He can absolutely give us the opportunity to feel rested at ANY time.
This morning, after some time thanking Him for all He has done and is doing in me, I decided to do something out of the ordinary. I woke the family up and told them we were going to go to breakfast. Needless to say for a couple people it was a push to get them moving. AND they weren’t very happy about it. BUT once we were all in the car, my husband and I started singing our favorite songs from the 90’s and the mood shifted.
We drove down to Balboa, which only took around 20 minutes, and had breakfast at Ruby’s Diner at the end of the pier. It was gorgeous!!!
What a way to start our day!!! We were there and back by 10am and still have the rest of the day to enjoy.
What I learned today…
Feeling tired? Open your Bible and rest in Him.
Feeling stuck? GO SOMEWHERE!
Take time to get in the car and go on an adventure. It could be to a park, a pond, a lake, the beach, a field…anything. Just think, if I were on vacation here (near your home), where would I go?
Go and enjoy your day!
