Give me something easy to do!

Last Friday I went to see my GP. He wasn't there so I saw the other doctor that covers for him. She is really nice, but speaks really really slowly! I hate seeing doctors or anything medical - I would rather just do anything I can than to see them but this has its good points as when I do see them they always know that something is really wrong! Ha! Ha!
Anyway the doc gave me some antibiotics and basically instructed me to rest for at least 5 days but that it could take longer. On telling me to rest up the thought that went through my head was 'Can't you give me something easy to do!' My husband will tell you that I don't often rest there is always something to do and if my hands aren't busy my brain usually is!

Today I was thinking though that rest is a biblical thing isn't it? I did a really basic search on Bible gateway and found that in the NIV the search comes up with 496 results in the NKJV the results are increased to 540. OK I know that this was kind of a crude search and some won't apply to rest in the manner that I am thinking but from God resting in Genesis 2, to Jesus resting in the boat on the sea of Galilee - perhaps this is something I need to learn to do..........

Just one touch from the King

Last year I read a book by Mark Stibbe called 'One touch from the King changes everything'- it made a big impression on me and a lot of points that he made I have mulled over a lot since I read it.
Two weeks today while on holiday I spent the day in bed sleeping as I felt so rough - I haven't been right since and now see my husband going through where I have been - he is a few days behind me with symptoms. I have been praying for complete restoration of health for both of us - there is so much on and I really want to be 100%, I am missing out on things and feeling quite isolated and I really want my man to be 100% - I see him carrying so much and under a huge amount of things that he HAS to do, I know that over the next month or two he is working weekends and weekdays and his evenings are stacked and I just can't see a break coming up for him; so I know that he needs to be at full health for work, Church, Alpha, home etc so I have been praying that he would know that one single touch - that would be all that it takes if God touched him. In light of this prayer this song has been often on my heart, my CD player and my lips in the shower in recent days! One touch from the King changes everything - one touch, just one touch!

Whatever the situation

Been an extremely tough week on all kinds of levels this week - health, work, just day to day living and this evening I was reminded of this song and that whatever the situation He is just still worthy of worship! Blessed be the name of the Lord!
