I’ll be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit misaligned lately. Out of whack. Rushed. Overwhelmed. Foggy. By the middle of last week, the brain fog was so real that I was misunderstanding almost every question being asked of me. My students, my family, even the dog, were getting blank stares.

My anxiety was telling me lies, my overwhelm was keeping me from seeing the positives, and all of it added up to mental exhaustion and my physical health taking a bit of a dive.

I’ve had to do a manual reset on myself this weekend. Take care of my body, focus on one thing at a time, get back into a Bible-reading/studying routine, and prayer. Lots of prayer. This has been my way of regrouping. Out of all the restorative things I’ve done, spending time in the Word and with Jesus has been the most helpful. The grace and rest I’ve found in him these past couple of days is nothing short of a miracle. It’s also a miracle that this happened to be the exact time I needed a three day weekend.

Praise the Lord for extra days off, am I right?

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” —Matthew 11:28
