Need rest?

SATURDAY PRAISES

Rest. It’s something we all long for but often can’t find. But what exactly is rest?

Let’s start by defining what rest is not:

agitation
anxiety
confusion
discontent
discord
moodiness
turmoil
trouble
uneasiness
upset
worry

And this is only a partial list!

And here’s what rest is:

relief (from worries and troubles)
repose
solitude
tranquility
mental or spiritual calm
take a break

We’ll continue this discussion next week but let me ask you an important question, Beloved:

which list are you on right now?

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. Which list?
    Even if one of the things from the first list is present, I would still be in the second, because *IN* every trial, Christ is there with me. I am secure in Him and HE gives real peace and rest.

    What an amazing God!
