Down time is wonderful. A cup of tea, something interesting to read, snuggled and cozy, having a relaxed- feel good moment. In all things we do the Holy Spirit desires to be part of it, by our side as the Help and Comforter in our lives. When I remember that, even my times of rest become that much nicer and pleasing. I have learned to acknowledge His presence in me and His presence with me, versus doing as I may alone. For in the Lord we find rest for our souls (Matthew 11:28-30). Therefore, when we give Him our heavy burdens, we can trust Him to revive us and allow us to experience guilt free the gentle moments in life we so need dearly.
“The LORD replied, My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest,” Exodus 33:14
