Thus says the Lord: “Stand by the roads and look; and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”  Jeremiah 6:16

God,

I praise you for the balance between work and rest

Forgive me when I take on more than you ever asked me to, and get tired

I stand at yet another fork in the road

Which is the good way?

Show me which path, and I will walk in it

I seek your rest for my weary soul

Thank you for being at work in my life even when I am asleep

Jesus, I want to learn of you

You give me relief, refreshment, and recreation for my soul

Thank you for sharing my burdens

Thank you for letting me make decisions with you

Thank you for your input

Holy Spirit, enable me to enjoy my work

And also enable me to enjoy my rest
