Weary are the days apart from the Lord

“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.” ” (Matthew 11:28-30 )

I think, but I am not sure, I am part of the working world again. After many months of unemployment, I think I landed a job. It sort of took me by surprise. I went in for what I thought was a job interview, and turned out I was hired on the spot. But I am not sure about the job; that is, it does not seem quite real. Maybe I will feel different after my first paycheck. For right now though, it is more like a waking dream than a solid reality.

However, if it is real, and I am once again employed it means I am part of the working world and subject to the “weary and burdened” of working. Gone are the easy and light burdens of keeping house. Not that I did not work hard keeping house, but I did that on my own schedule. It also means the time available to me to write is shorter too. I will have more to do and will need to cram all of it into the same 24 hours that previously gave me the opportunity to take my time and do my daily tasks well and complete.

It is my hope and prayer that this time around I can do a better job of managing my time, and avoid the weariness and weighed down feeling. However time alone will tell. May you gentle reader use your time well, and dwell with the Lord letting the wisdom of the Holy Spirit guide your steps and schedule. Selah!
