Fresh Mercy

It’s been a season like no other in our marriage. So many challenges hitting one right after another. We have barely been able to catch our breath. Maybe you are feeling much the same way.

Now that life is starting back up slowly it feels exhausting doing normal things. If we get with friends it takes all the energy we have to engage and fellowship—but it is so good. I’m wondering if we were always this way but had grown used to the exhaustion.

We all need rest, a Sabbath, to pull back and do nothing for a day. I see this now more than ever, and I can actually thank God for the time we had at home for 10 weeks.

In our marriage we have the privilege of helping our spouse embrace regular rest. We know how to help them relax and I’m praying we will all be more intentional to see it happen now.

What are three ways you know your spouse relaxes? What are three ways you relax? Why not do what you can to help them breathe deep and recharge, and enjoy the gift of fresh mercy for today.
