Knowing when to rest

One thing (of very many things) I love about God is that He gives us the strength we need to go on.

This can be for anything. From achieving our goals to just getting through a seemingly impossible week. He's always there, ready to give a boost when we need it. Often, all we need to do is ask.

Recently, I've been learning something else about Him. And by extension about me.

You see, He's been telling me to chill out.

I pray for Him to take away my migraines, He tells me to take time away from my computer. (I have been making a habit of 18 hour days in front of the screen.)

I pray to help me with my exhaustion, He tells me to rest. To do something different. To go take a breath of fresh air.

I pray about this scary time in my business, He tells me to stay calm. He's taking care of it. All I need to do is do little bits at a time and everything will be okay.

He also tells me to turn off the noise. Silence can be so good for us. The calmness that (eventually) comes with it renews us.

And right now, after a rather hellish weekend of short sleeps, He's telling me to stop everything I'm doing and just go sleep. You know, I really need it. So I'm posting this, turning off the lights and my computer. And then I'm (hopefully) going to sleep like a stone.

Has God told you or been telling you to chill out?

With a very bad back-ache I do think God is givingme the message to take time away from the computer.

I do hope you get better soon, Misha.
