All of your heart.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path.
I recently have been reading ‘Boy meets Girl’ by Joshua Harris- a book on Courtship and all that. Seated in a taxi this morning, I came to the end of this book that has been my travel companion for the last couple of days(mainly the past week really). So at the end of the book, the writer goes ahead to explain his reasons for writing and lo and behold; it didn’t have very much to do with helping you find the love of your life and all that. He hoped that by reading the book, we’d be drawn to a more intimate relationship with God!

Alighting from the taxi, all that occupied my mind was this portion of scripture. Memory upon memory flooded my mind! When I was a child, we sang it as a song in Sunday school and the more I thought, the more things that occurred to me to think about!

Sometimes LIFE CAN BE SO BUSY! And it just keeps getting busier! You find yourself running from one appointment to another never really finding time to stop. You wake up and even before your feet touch the ground, you're in go-mode! As your day progresses, the calls just keep coming in and it's one thing after another.

Life can prove entirely busy and time-consuming. But we have all come to embrace life as so. If it's not the job it's friends or social media or ministry or family or television. Our lives are so full of events that just keep going we just have to be deliberate and stop.

I find that too many people are moving through life fatigued and cranky because they barely get enough rest. No, I don't mean sleep but rest. They just have not taken time off to shut everything out and breathe for a moment.

Unfortunately I used to be one of those people who was always feeling tired, spent, fatigued- and many times I find myself slipping back into it- but I have lear…
