I think it is pretty safe to say that my life has a crazy level of stress. I have three kids, a husband, a full time job, church, piano practices, baseball, soccer, dance, and a whirlwind of appointments that always find a way of creeping in.

There are so many days when I really feel like I might explode. There are moments I pray I actually make it to the end of the day with some sense of sanity left.

Most days I am exhausted; I mean really exhausted! I never knew my body could ache this much. I know I am getting old, but really?!?!

I have learned that just about E-V-E-R-Y night I need a little peace….I need to unwind. Taking a relaxing bath has become my unwind time. Some nights I literally might only get 5 minutes to soak, but there is just something about completely immersing my body into the hot water and just being for a few minutes that I can’t go without.

The other night as I was soaking in my bath and thinking of how blessed I was to be off my feet, God began to speak to me. What if I craved Him as much as I did my nightly bath? What if my day just could not end without just 5 minutes in His word, 5 minutes soaking up His love for me.

So often I feel like I find an excuse to not spend time in God’s word or to just stop for 5 minutes and thank God for all He is doing in my life, the good and crazy!

Life is stressful, but I can’t forget to let God be a part of every moment of my life. He needs to be the one I run to when I need to unwind. He will comfort, shield, and grant me the rest I need.

Let Him be your relaxation and soak up His love and grace. He is ready and waiting to pour the abundance of His love onto you and me today!
  "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Matthew 11:28-30
