Sunday Thought: Rest Financially and Spiritually

The Lord Jesus Christ said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

So I learned a while back about the importance of rest in all its forms. I was working long hours, worried about money, and not much about my spirit or myself. I was sitting on the couch, feeling burnt from watching TV, when suddenly my eyesight became blurry. Then it seemed like a “ball” was lifting my field of vision, causing a bulge in the middle of it (if you have seen computer graphics or screen savers that do this, you’ll understand what I was seeing). I freaked out. What the hell was going on? My eyesight continued to be distorted for about an hour, and it finally went away. I talked to my optometrist and my doctor, who told me I had an ocular migraine (I didn’t have any pain, just distortion). They asked me:

When I answered yes and saw the bags under my eyes, they told me this condition would recur unless I relaxed and took time off. I managed to extricate myself from the stressful job, cut down on the coffee, got some sleep, and made sure I got back into the life of my Church by working there and helping out.

Rest, you can’t worry about money all the time. Sometimes, you have to give yourself a break.
