In the seasons wherein we persevere through long days and full schedules we look forward to times of rest on the horizon. A spiritual principle may be found therein too. God gives us grace in the busy seasons, but also purposes that we find rest in Him and hide away in His presence as well. The challenge is not filling our calendars with other obligations during such times!
Consider taking a retreat this summer, setting aside even a half or full day to study or have time in prayer. I’d love to assist you in finding resources, locations, or retreats or workshops. Find times to allow the Lord to pour into you what is needful. Make such times a priority as they sustain us in the busy seasons and allow us to have something from which we can give in ministry to Him and others.
Summer can be as busy, if not more so, than the school year if we are not careful. Be intentional this summer, and press into the Lord. When we have seasons to be built up in Him it sure makes the busy seasons more peaceful!
