Burning the Candle at Both Ends

Image result for burning the candle at both ends

Burning the candle at both ends…
is how many of us feel each day…
for we run around nonstop…
until exhaustion gets in our way.
But this is not of God’s design…
and definitely not in His plan…
for we need time to rest with Him…
and only then will we understand.
For He speaks in the quietness…
in a small, still voice…
not in the hustle and bustle…
which may even be some’s choice.
So we need to learn to listen…
and in God’s presence rest…
for He will bring healing and restoration…
so we can always function our best.

“Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.” 1 Kings 19:11-12

Dear Lord, only You know the multitude who are “burning the candle at both ends.” We pray for rest for the weary. Help all who are struggling to accomplish all that is set forth before them. Protect them from all attacks of the enemy and bring healing and restoration to every body, soul, and spirit… in Jesus’ Name, we pray. Amen.
