This month has been a whirlwind! Good but Crazy! Started out the 1st weekend visiting out of state relatives in SC for a long weekend, then the next weekend with out of state relatives at my house for a long weekend, then out of state friend at my house for a long weekend and then lots of friends at my house for a friend gathering this past Friday night. I am bushed! A good bushed! But I have to admit that I walked around dazed on Saturday and was very thankful that I was going to have a quiet couple days at home. There is nothing better than spending time with people you love. They love me well and I love them well.
1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
But I found myself a little lonely. Feeling like I was disconnected and apart. As I was driving to church yesterday morning, it hit me!, I hadn’t connected with Jesus “well” in almost a month. I was connecting with everyone else but not with Him. I can always tell when it’s been too long since I’ve had a nice long chat with Him.
So I’ve reminded myself that it’s good to love others and connect well with them but I MUST NOT let it draw me away from my best friend, Jesus. He is what carries me through so that I can love well. And without Him, I am reminded that I will be lonely even when my life is full of others.
I thank you Lord for reminding me that I can find rest in You.
