And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.Philippians 4:8
“In difficult times carry something beautiful in your heart.”Blaise Pascal
I just came across this quote and found it a great reminder of what God desires for our life. Sometimes there’s a weariness that comes with the relentless demands of life and relationships. Sometimes all I want to do is do nothing.
My day begins again and already so many things are rushing at me. I want to pause, to take in what’s beautiful. I want to stop to allow myself to be a little kinder to myself first – not selfishly but because I want to be with my God who is seeking out that beautiful part of me.Perhaps this is the cause of my weariness. I haven’t yet learned to stay long enough with what is beautiful.
