In this time of exams and revision, the idea of resting feels a long way away. I know I’m looking forward to July and just hoping the work I have to do between now and then doesn’t prove too difficult.
I know also that this time of busyness has an effect on my relationship with God as I haven't spent so much time with Him, and that effects how I love other people. John Mark Comer suggested recently that in his experience “80% of loving well is being emotionally healthy and spiritually awake.”
This time is year is often a stressful one at school and uni. Right now, many of you are finishing up exams, mocks or otherwise, and for those of you with big exams in the summer I’m sure they’re coming into view at this point too.
