Ponder: It's been said, "God doesn't give us more than we can bear." If this is so, don't you sometimes wish She didn't think so much of our strength? Think of how much energy it takes just to hold up your arms, for a minute straight. But God didn't say we couldn't rest from time to time—to pause and recharge in the ongoing work of finding a way to bless what is.
Pray: Holy, holy, holy One: It's going to be a long life, God willing. Teach me how to take frequent breaks so I don't get all used up until it's time to come home to You.
