Knowing Our Limits

After enjoying a restful recovery day yesterday, I fear that I overdid things slightly today. There’s an important life lesson in here, for sure: Unwisely leaping headlong into a new activity (simply because I am feeling a little better) is not a good move.

Lesson learned! I will be enjoying a peaceful Sabbath tomorrow, where I will be pursuing a day of what I call “active rest”. That is, I actively and intentionally set aside the time in my day to be still and rest, rather than getting busy with the things that occupy my mind for most of the week.

So I’m signing off a bit earlier than usual. I look forward to reconnecting with you all sometime tomorrow!

Dear Lord, I thank You for an enjoyable day. It was another beautiful day in California, and I thank You for giving me the energy to go to church and to volunteer and children’s ministry, as is my custom. 

Forgive me for overdoing things a bit: 1) going to the grocery store and lugging two bags of food up the stairs; and 2) carrying my laptop and rolling tote bag up the stairs, on a different trip (same day, though). 😮 These were both unwise and imprudent decisions on my part today, and I promise to make wiser choices in the future, as I reacclimate to my normal routine. 

I recognize my limits now, and will be sure to behave accordingly in the future. In Your name I pray, Amen.

  1. :):) it happens my friend. We feel better and want to do stuff. But like you said, you realized it and will take it easy today. I was smiling from ear to ear because this Exodus verse is scheduled to post as one of my verses tomorrow. Coincidence, I think not. The Lord is blessing us both with “He is always with us, and He will give us rest” :):) So happy you are feeling better 🙂

      1. Yes, He always does. I have been going through an issue with my insurance. I know I can only do what I can do, and He will have to do the rest, haha rest, no pun intended. I have asked Him, and have been thanking Him for making them do the right thing. Now, I wait :):)

      2. I can empathize. I’ve had to do some battle with my insurance carrier as well – it seems to me like they make mistakes and then we end up being the one to suffer for them. I’ve learned the importance of becoming my own advocate or my health is concerned, and I do not assume that what the insurance company says is necessarily correct (usually it is not). I shall pray for a speedy and effective resolution to your situation.

      3. I agree with what you have said. I was on the phone with them almost ever day last week, several times a day some days. As well as the week before. I keep notes and am amazed at how many incorrect, different, and inconsistent answers I get every time I speak with them. But as with all things I have asked the Almighty to make them do the right thing, and have been thanking Him for doing so. As far as I am concerned they are dealing with Him now ;):)

        Thank you for your prayers. They are worth more than gold :):)

      4. Please keep me posted on how things go! You have the right perspective on the whole situation, Margaret. The Lord will work it out for you, but the waiting (and having to document everything) can sure be frustrating. sometimes.

      5. He’s got it under control. 😉 The thing I have to keep doing is, when I have to talk to them, not to get tangled in the frustration of the chasing my tail effect. Because they had me chasing a form that had to be filled out. Been looking for this form for days. Today, they tell me it doesn’t even exist and why was I looking for it. LOL ummmmm, well because y’all told me on 5 different occassions, gave them the names of the 5 different reps who told me it was needed. They were sorry for the misinformation but there is no such form. hahaha. Have to laugh, and repeating in my head, Thank you God for making them do the right thing.

      6. You know, I had a similar issue w/my health insurance company. Seven months it took the company resolve its own internal issue (even though!). Ah well – what can we do? I hope that your situation resolves itself soon enough, my friend!
