Hank, Go to Bed!
Like Hank, I have been exceptionally tired this week. DLST seems to do it to me every time!
Hank could not seem to find a comfortable place to rest this morning. He rooted around in the bedding trying to make a comfortable place but he looked very uncomfortable. Poor little hamster guy. I picked him up and he was so exhausted from running his night away on the exercise wheel, and his tummy was quite full. He was lethargic and let me do anything with him.
Hank just needed some loving attention which, of course, I generously gave him. I moved his little hamster hut, made it into a dark place to sleep and encouraged him to enter. He is sleeping soundly and I saw evidence that he has been out, drank water, and now back inside. Could the time change have caught up with him? I don’t know.
What I do know is that I also am sometimes lethargic. I read my Bible but it really doesn’t sink in. I hear encouragement and reply, “I suppose so,” and remain in a semi-comatose state spiritually. It is then that it seems that Jesus tenderly provides a place of rest and nudges me into it. I rest in His presence and come out refreshed and ready to run again.
Jesus encourages me often with the verses from Matthew 11:29-30 “Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
