I have been struck with flu-like symptomsfor the past couple of days (actually the afternoon after a really productive morning I wrote about in an earlier post).
I have continued to improve, but am also continually surprised at how much a virus can affect the body, and how the body is set up to naturally fight off little things that do not belong inside its ecosystem. I think most of what I have been feeling over the past couple of days has more to do with the latter than the former, thankfully.
I continue to work on what I am in the middle of, and found encouragement when I read this passage out of Matthew (11:28-30):
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
I love that no matter what I may be working on or how I may be feeling, God's Spirit does give me rest - spiritually, emotionally and physically. I have known that to be true. My heart has also tasted the sweetness of deep communion with My Lord who is both gentle and humble and is slowly teaching me how to be gentle and humble with myself and the world. xo
