I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Devotion: Well Done

Sometimes I feel so tired.
Worn out by daily stress,
Family and business concerns,
Hives, diet and other health considerations.
Life overwhelms and I wonder…
Where am I headed?
Am I spending what time I have wisely?
Do I truly make a difference?
Who listens to what I say? Reads what I write?
Time to stop! Realize life is not about me.
Need to rest, refresh myself in Him.
Pray and read God’s Word,
Seek and follow His direction each day.
Allow Him to Help me release the stress and burdens,
And to reorganize time, priorities, schedule and life.
Then I can make the best use possible of the time,
And the moments God has given
So when my Savior calls me home,
He’ll smile and say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. –Matthew 11: 28

Help me, Lord, serve You in Your will and way–not mine. Amen.
