Many of us have heard “no rest for the weary” which means you must keep persevering no matter how tired or overworked you are. Well I am here to tell you to REST. Tuesday I hit a wall like never before. I was irritable. I didn’t want anyone talking to me. And every time the office phone rung I wanted to throw it.
Why was Neikeita so tired? I am so glad you asked. I’ve always worked two jobs. It typically goes in cycles where I either have one job or two. Right now I am working two jobs. My full time job Monday through Friday and my part time job is on Saturday and Sunday. The kid is literally working seven days a week. Well Tuesday it dawned on me that since Black Friday, I’ve worked 36 hours and the week had just started. I was fit to be tired and was in bed at 7:30 pm. The rest was so needed. And on Wednesday morning one of my devotionals talked about rest and not feeling guilty about it. I was thankful to have a night of uninterrupted to sleep and waking up feeling refresh and not in pain.
Now you are probably when I am going to give up working two jobs. My prayer is soon but I will ensure that I keep my plate at a non-full level so I can get the proper amount of sleep.
