God Gives Rest To The Weary

Light Over Darkness

Thoughtful Thursday

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" ~ Matthew 11:28

When we take the time to still ourselves and be alone in God's presence we will find an indescribable sense of peace. All of our burdens are made light and joy is restored. Faith is the key to entering into sacred rest in God.  It is through our relationship and total surrender of our will to perfect will of God that we find the clarity that is needed to live fully. Restlessness is usually a signal that shift needs to take place in your life. We find out way forward with when we find out center.

Bring your thoughts into alignment with God's word.  Allow your actions to flow according to divine instruction. Take each day as it comes, receive the lessons and the blessings.

A piece I wrote while spending time alone in God's sweet rest

"Biblical rest is an attitude of heart that feels so sheltered in God’s love that it does not allow itself to be pulled into a place of strife in order to obtain God’s approval. Rest is a place where mankind will be drawn to us because everyone is searching for rest." Excerpt Revival Magazine
"The restlessness we feel is not a bad thing. I believe it is the longing and passion in us for God - for more. It could push us to move forward, to live epic lives that were designed before the foundations of the earth were laid. The stirrings of a revolution are in works. God is gathering a force, and change is coming."-Restless: Because You Were Made for More
