“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.” ~Matthew 11:28
My hubby & I had a “Just us” vacation last year, it was a much needed getaway, to rest our minds. You have great vacation, you free your mind, but you come home to reality. It’s back to a full schedule of church (I mean EVERY weekend we have something from September until Thanksgiving), cheer practices, games, school & back to work (ICD-10 was my welcome back, you in the medical field know exactly what I mean). REALITY met us at the county line. You play catch up constantly, but never catch up. I felt like my phone, too many tabs running in the background, killing my battery. “My brain has too many tabs open”!
In all the chaos I still had time to get on Pinterest, thank God for Pinterest. I had seen this quote “My Brain Has Too Many Tabs Open” & thought this is exactly how I feel. I always think I can do it all and in reality I barely do any of it. When I have too many tabs open, I try to swipe them away, but never can. In the process of working my “tabs”, I forgot to open the most important “Tab” that helps me clear my other ones out; My Savior Tab!
I spent time with God, but I didn’t acknowledge that He is my helper. I wear my “Martha” hat, and work all these “tabs”, but what I need to do is put my “Mary” hat on and sit at His feet & catch my breath. When you get brain overload, your attitude changes & not for the good. I choose to give it to God! He says, “Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.”
So now I take one “Tab” at a time, work it & swipe it away.

Yes, God is bigger than any of my “Tabs”. When you get “Brain Overload”, breathe & set at His feet, He’s got you!
I love worship music, and below is one of my favorite stress reliever songs. “Come to Me” by Bethel
Put this on repeat as you catch your breath & sit at His feet. We don’t always have to be “Martha’s”, we need to strive to be a “Mary”.
My “tabs” have been swiped away.
So start swiping.
