Another Sabbath Day — A Question of Trust

Bromeliads at the top of the KCC cactus garden

Good Morning, God!

This photo was taken at dusk from above the KCC cactus garden. I had no idea they had bromeliads at the top. From the bottom all I could see were cacti. Looking down was a nice change of perspective.

Today is another Sabbath Day — a Gift from You to us — if only we will stop our busyness and open it.

Hmmm. Yes, make that MY Busyness. Too busy to receive GIFTS from YOUR HAND? It sounds really dumb, doesn’t it.

But the problem is — just like at the bottom of the cactus garden — I lack perspective. I can SEE what I am busy doing. It has meaning and purpose. But, God, Your Gifts are Invisible and take Time to appear. It isn’t like at the end of today I will see what gifts You have given me during the day.

You say that is is about TRUSTING YOU! And that it will get easier as I do it, but then, life isn’t about easy, is it.  God, that is NOT a really good sales pitch!

Sorry, sorry, I forgot there for a minute. You are into Commands, not marketing.  But, You get my point. It is really HARD to rest and relax and play and let the work stay undone. Well, now that I see that in print, I guess it isn’t that hard. I’m back to feeling foolish that I have made being productive so important.

Yes, for some unknown reason, YOU WANT (read: COMMAND) ME TO REST today. I shouldn’t be arguing with You or complaining.  I should be ENJOYING! DUH!  Please help me rest today, God.
