“for my yoke is easy and my burden is light”
Happy Monday everyone!!!!!
I’m immensely sorry for not posting last week that much; I had posted in the last blog post that I would post only three days last week; however circumstances happened. On Saturday I decided to head to the beach to relax from everything, work, church, and home. I was able to enjoy the fresh air and the water as also the scenery of the sea and the ride was fun.
In that moment I was plain Ana; just one with God and nature. Seeing God’s hand in the beauty that is in our world. What can I say it was a much-needed rest.. from thinking of the stuff at home, at church, and at work. I’m the type of person that never rests; I’m not much of an outgoing person I have always been someone who is comfortable staying at home and reading and blogging or just singing around; but this last week I had felt all the stress of a couple of weeks from work, home and church. There is a moment when you just have to be and rest and heal at your own time.
A bible verse that always calls my attention is in Ecclesiastes 3:4; because as someone once said time is the essence of our being( I don’t remember who said it though) anyways this verse always calls me to attention because I’m so involved most of the time in other people’s lives and situation trying to help them and give support that I forget myself in the process and a lot of times I end up burnt out from everything; emotionally, mentally and physically.
“A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to moun and a time to dance.”
Having a ministry it’s really hard and I really do congratulate Jesus first of all that his ministry lasted for 3 straight running years; the disciples for spreading his word, our pastors, evangelists, missionary’s and our brethren for walking daily with God and still having the strength and faith to continue walking with him. This will be my second year as a youth leader and I feel burnt out.. it so hard dealing with so many different personalities and characters; it’s almost frustrating at times. But I always remember that it’s God who gives the strength in everything we do.
” I cannot carry all these people by myself; the burden is too heavy for me”
My stay at the beach was for just a few hours as it was pretty close to home so I decided to head back home. However it was a good experience first of all for myself and with my family. Another thing that I learned is to love yourself first; it you are burnt out take time to recuperate from everything and you will see the greater blessing that you will be to someone else… How can you give if you don’t receive yourself the healing from God if you are constantly worrying about the ministry.I missed you guys.. leave a comment below 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻and let me know what everyone was up to this weekend…Shalom💕💗
