But as I’m thinking about this, my mind in overdrive thinking about all the good that God would have me participate in and notice, there is Ivy, basking in the midday sun on green grass without a care in the world resting in the presence of God (because we are all living in God’s presence all the time).
Ivy reminds me that I need to do that.
Sometimes being rooted in relationship with God is simply about taking 5 minutes to just be with God.
Not to do more. Not to speak. Not to listen. Just to rest in the presence of God who loves me and whom I love in return.
I’m going to take 5 minutes to just be in God’s presence and I invite you to do the same; resting and reveling in the love that God has for each of us in Jesus who says “come to me all whose hearts are heavy (and whose minds are overworked!) and I will give you rest.”
