Hey friends, happy Monday :) How was your weekend? Melbourne was showing off with the bluest skies I've seen in a while.. how good was it?! Just a little reminder that winter solstice has now been and gone (hooray!) and we are now officially on the up.. and headed toward summer!
I am heading overseas in a week tomorrow (eek!) so I have had quite a full week/weekend preparing. I know it's a pretty busy time for a lot of people at the moment, so today I thought it would be a great opportunity for us all to just take it easy. What do you think?! I'm not talking about "taking a day off" necessarily.. but I mean just putting aside that 'never-ending'to-do-list' for a few minutes and just allowing yourself to take a breath.
In busy times it's easy for our minds to suddenly become filled with little thoughts, and before we know it we we're overwhelmed and not sure what to do next! It's bit like being in a traffic jam and not knowing how to get out... do you know what I mean?
But good news, there is a way out, and today is a new day. It's a fresh start. A chance to transform our thinking and renew our minds. And today we are going to take it easy.
So my challenge to you, is to take your "to do lists" and "should do lists",
set them aside for a moment... and just do this.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.
So today... in exchange for the busyness, there is peace for you.
You've just got to take it. ;)
Have a wonderful Monday taking it easy!
