The old adage that youth is wasted on the young is one I agree with more as I get older. The older you get the more tired you feel.  Yet you have more life experience and you wish that you just had your old energy. 

This week I have felt particularly tired.  I have had a busy couple of weeks and one lunchtime I fell asleep on the couch for about half an hour.  This feeling of tiredness led me to think about Psalm 62.  Twice in the psalm David says ‘My soul finds rest in God.’  Some translations have added the word alone.  As I have craved some physical rest this week, I have again realised that resting in God is one of the best things that we can do.  When I think about the verse I imagine myself resting back in God’s arms and knowing again that he is in complete control.  

What ever you are going through this week take a moment to sit, close your eyes and imagine God’s arms embracing you.  He is in complete control find rest in his promise. 

Have a great week,
