Recently , I have been travelling and have taken the time to stop at different : “On Route “rest stops. Ontario has wonderful rest areas! These On Routes have the typical gas station, Tim Hortons, A&W, Taco Bell, KFC, the washrooms of course and even a small market- where you can get fruit etc…
Sorry, my fellow Americans; but Ontario has the best rest areas I’ve ever been too!
At the Rest Area you can rest as long as you want, get a bite to eat, kick back and talk, laugh with your travel mates, walk around the green grass or sit in the sun on the outside tables and chairs. I really like On Routes! I like to just sit in the sun ( depending on the weather ), and I put my feet up and am so thankful for that very moment.
Then, I started thinking : Life. How we are going about in our life , doing our daily activities: working, taking care of our families, going out with friends, fishing, going to church, working out, shopping, whatever it is that you do…
I started wondering if we take the time to stop at ” Gods Rest Area”?. Do you?
The business of life sometimes has us going around in circles ; doing the same thing day in and day out , that we may forget taking time to stop at Gods Rest Area. The place that we can sit in His Son shine, Drink in the River of Life- His new wine, Eat from His banqueting table, Rest in His arms, Laugh and talk with God. Have you done that lately?
Did you forget that there is even a Gods Rest Area?
No matter what “weather” you are currently experiencing, you can always go to God. He is waiting for us, wanting to talk with us, laugh with us, share His heart with you, with me.
Take the time to rest your weary legs ; and just sit and breathe. Let the goodness of God wash over you and restore you, today!!!!
