resting in Him….

Have you heard the song that goes, “I am restless, I am restless, until I rest in You, I rest in You”…every time I hear this song it makes me take a deep breath and want to be still in Him for just a few minutes. I must be needing it because every time I turn around I hear this song. It is so true and right that unless I allow myself to be consumed by Him then I begin to run on that energy that in the end makes me feel tired and unfulfilled. Meditating on His word, taking a run and talking to Him the whole way thru, getting up early before the house wakes up and just be quiet before Him, these are the things that matter and keep the focus and the goal on track. I can let so many ‘things’ of this world bombarded my energy, my brain and in the end it all doesn’t matter. I want to have a focus on those things that are eternal like raising my kids the way that they should go, spend time with a friend in need, help someone out that is going thru something that they could use my support and love, serve my husband well. There is always something the Lord would put before us if we would be sensitive to His call. That for me is possibly stopping for a few minutes to rest in Him so that I may hear Him.

Jhen.Stark - Oh this is so true!!!!! I’m working on this for me… RESTING IN HIM! I saw this verse earlier that someone posted: “People do not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4. Oh how that gave my heart such conviction but grace at the same time! Thank you for sharing this post!!!

Cheryl @ On the Old Path - Oh I couldn’t agree more, all the little things can get in the way but when we rest in Him… Matt. 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I am so thankful that His burden is light. This was a good reminder Thanks! Cheryl

Big Fat Mama - This is great! I’m at peace when I am resting in Him, and by resting in Him, I mean really, really trusting Him!!

Rosemi - Yes, I must do better at this. I think it would help me a whole lot! I tend to let life draw me to Him and those moments have been so sweet, but I perhaps wouldn’t have such a rough time if I disciplined myself a little better to get up before everybody else just to pray and read just a chapter. I bet it would help lighten the load emotionally too.

Many blessings to you dear friend.

Julie - Great reminder – thanks! It reminds me of that verse in Psalm. “I have stilled and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother”. This is what I need to do, instead of go, go, go all the time, just still and quiet, resting in the Lord.
