I had a crazy, stressful, busy schedule this past week. :o I was sooooo worn out, and my sched was still so full today. What's so amazing is how refreshed I got today, even when I had no free time at all. From the Cluster, to T4V, to Music Team - love love! :D When you do it for God, you would really feel His grace and rest. <3 data-blogger-escaped-br="br">
Actually, I honestly thought that I could carry the stress alone. I would rant to my dearest best friend, Belle(who deserves honoring due to the number of times she listened to my ranting and reminded me to just lift it up to God <3 data-blogger-escaped-act="act" data-blogger-escaped-and="and" data-blogger-escaped-br="br" data-blogger-escaped-broke="broke" data-blogger-escaped-carry="carry" data-blogger-escaped-couldn="couldn" data-blogger-escaped-do="do" data-blogger-escaped-down.="down." data-blogger-escaped-end="end" data-blogger-escaped-everything="everything" data-blogger-escaped-exhausted="exhausted" data-blogger-escaped-i="i" data-blogger-escaped-in="in" data-blogger-escaped-it="it" data-blogger-escaped-just="just" data-blogger-escaped-life="life" data-blogger-escaped-like="like" data-blogger-escaped-me.="me." data-blogger-escaped-midterms="midterms" data-blogger-escaped-ministry="ministry" data-blogger-escaped-my="my" data-blogger-escaped-na="na" data-blogger-escaped-near="near" data-blogger-escaped-okay="okay" data-blogger-escaped-other="other" data-blogger-escaped-out="out" data-blogger-escaped-own.="own." data-blogger-escaped-requirements="requirements" data-blogger-escaped-school="school" data-blogger-escaped-social="social" data-blogger-escaped-spiritual="spiritual" data-blogger-escaped-t="t" data-blogger-escaped-the="the" data-blogger-escaped-then="then" data-blogger-escaped-trials="worn" data-blogger-escaped-ulit.="ulit." data-blogger-escaped-was="was">
And so when I went and lifted all my problems to Him, laid everything that I was at His feet, I felt Him carry me AT THAT VERY MOMENT. It felt good, because I was physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausted at the time. I felt comforted; joyful; at peace; AT REST. You only do truly find rest in Him - Him and Him alone. No matter how strong you think you are, no matter how you think you can manage it, the world can overwhelm you and weigh you down.
However, He cares. He cares about your problems; He cares about your schedule; He cares about those exams and fellowship dates. He cares about those tiny little details, and I love Him for that. So don't even ATTEMPT to carry the burdens and pressure alone. Lift it up to God, let Him carry you. Find rest in Him, because He's worried; He's concerned; He's watching how you burn yourself out, and He's reaching out His hand. Draw near, take His hand, let Him carry you. <3 data-blogger-escaped-br="br">
I feel ready to face the new week! :) Honor and glory to God through and through! :D

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights."
