Have you ever felt that you wish that there were 30 hours in a day instead of just 24? I’ve been feeling like this a lot lately. Sometimes I wish there were even 8 or 9 days a week so I can at least rest one. Juggling between so many chores at the same time can be really excruciating.
You know it’s good to have things to do. Being bored can make you lazy and start having a sedentary life. Sedentary means bad to your health. But being too busy can also be bad. Stress, anxiety….not a good thing either. We must look for a balance or, in other words, just take it easy.
I often think that when good things come; they all arrive to your life at the same time. We want to accept everything because we know that nothing lasts forever, specially the blessings. Now I’m able to work, but then I won’t know if I’ll have an available job in the future. That’s the tricky peculiarity of being unstable professionally. We are obligated to live by faith. We don’t know what the future holds.
That’s why I love these Bible verses that I want to share with you:
“Then Jesus said to his disciples: Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?” Luke 12:22-26
Jesus really nailed it, didn’t he? We constantly worry about our relatives, about the news, about our jobs and about ourselves. But we can still have rest in the middle of our constant duties. The only day we have is today. Yesterday is gone forever; tomorrow is uncertain.
Let’s just enjoy today: hug your kids, tell them you love them. Call your parents if you are blessed enough to still have them alive and well. Pray to God and be thankful. Rest in Him and He will give you peace that passes understanding.
