May. Garfield has Mondays, Superman has kryptonite, I have the month of May. I think everyone gets together and says, “Lets put all of our important functions in one month, and lets make it the month before the 3 months of euphoria known as the summer.” Why? It’s one last stick in the ribs before snowcones, sprinklers, vacations, Bar-B-Ques, and swimming pools. The “hectic-ness” of May can really be overwhelming. It was early this morning that I saw the verse that I’ve seen a trillion times in my life; but this morning, it was in the context of this busy season of life. “Be still, and know that I am God.” – Psalm 46:10. Also, in Matthew 11, Jesus says he’ll give rest to the weary. Rest, that’s what I need. So what do I do? I try to obtain in on my own, telling myself that times aren’t as crazy as they seem, or take a “suck it up and deal with it” approach. But in all truth, rest is not something I can gain on my own; it’s nothing I can do, or obtain. It is a gift from Father. “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will GIVE you rest” – Matthew 11:28. You are great, Father.
