Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Yesterday was a mental health day of sorts. Typically, I am rushing around trying to be productive in an accomplishment sense, but I took it easy. After dropping off some fine individuals to school, I did a little shopping with my Beloved and we went to the International House of Pancakes or IHOP.
The culmination of the dental work, leaving a job I have been at for a decade, some heavy physical labor, and preparing my heart for Communion slowed me down more than I expected, but did not stop me.
I took the day to evaluate direction and priorities, and I benefited from it. Tomorrow is a fresh start of sorts in my new role and benchmarks have merit.
Today is the last day on my current job assignment and it has been a journey, some of it extreme enough to be public record.
I feel fresh and relaxed. Taking the day off to reflect, rest and unwind were beneficial and I have renewed strength. The Bible speaks of this.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 KJV
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 KJV
In my new role, I look to wait on God and trust him more. I am confident good things are about to happen.
