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?

  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!
