Being in the office in Lacombe, in the centre of much activity, can leave me buzzing. There is always so much to do and so many people to interact with. Sometimes in the business of it all I forget to breathe and rest in God’s grace and faithfulness. It is amazing that all that happens in this building and in my office is because of God’s love and blessing. When I take moments to remember that, I feel my body relax and my mind calm. Jesus is the centre, and when I keep him at my centre I can truly rest. Often in the office we are working on projects that are months away which pull us away from being present or mindful of today. My aim heading into another busy season is to each day be mindful of the love God has for me and the blessings he has placed around me and to truly rest and enjoy. I love that I am able to contribute to all the staff and ministries at CAYU, and I know that the more I rest and rely on God, the more energy and stamina I have to support the staff and their mission.
I pray that you all will be able to find moments of true rest in God’s grace,
