I forgot to schedule this post last night, and I woke up thinking about it. Now, having only been up about twenty minutes, I'm sitting on my bed to write.
And I'm thinking back over the past week. I don't always do this on weekends, but I like to. Reflection can be nice—to see what I've gotten accomplished and remember how God has worked in the past six or seven days.
This morning, I'm recalling that this week was kind of crazy. Several days found me stressing over all the things I needed to get done. The to-do list with reminders of homework, editing, blogging, writing. (And reading? I haven't read a book for the pure enjoyment of it in two weeks... O.o) Things going on in our family and church family. The science midterm that I'm still not sure how well I did on was the cause of much of this stress.
But even in the busy seasons of life, when we just can't seem to keep up, has God forgotten us? Left us to fend for ourselves?
No, of course not. He's right here with us—we only have to remember that. To reach out to Him. To call on His Name.
On Monday morning, I knew I had a lot to get done, so I didn't take the time to read my Bible first thing. And you know what? Monday was a terrible day.
On Wednesday morning, I overslept. But I still took the time to read my Bible before grabbing breakfast and dashing out the door to ceramics class. When I returned, I had lunch, took the chemistry test, and got ready for church.
Wednesday nights at the Potts house means prayer meeting/Bible study/youth group. (Last week, it also meant Chick-Fil-A and nearly being involved in a wreck, but that's a story for another time.) Our youth group was rehearsing for an Easter skit we're doing in a few weeks. And you know what? I don't know when I last laughed so hard. Although I'm several years older than most of them, that group of kids and teens are pretty awesome. And an hour spent with them was exactly what I needed halfway through a stressful week.
There is blessings in the chaos, y'all. Run to the One who offers sleep and rest in the storm. <3
In the midst of all this, I came across this song. I love Unspoken's music, but I had never heard this one before. It's a beautiful reminder and exactly what I needed this week. Give it a try and be blessed. <3
