Day 55: r e s t

Sometimes we just need to rest. Do we know how? I had such a bad cold, I really did nothing but sleep. I had been tempted to go beyond that since I was home, but really, I felt too bad to do anything else. Rest. I rested. Truly. I cannot say I’ve done that in a long time.

Today, I am feeling better, but I still need to rest. Yes, there are many things I could use this REST time to do as well, but I am choosing to do nothing, which some have informed that, “Sometimes doing nothing IS doing something.”

And with that, I am going back to bed. Yes. I can rest easy knowing that I am in good hands.  The BEST hands.  I know that my body needs rest in order to heal properly. So I will rest while God does His work in me. He is so good. And He calls us to rest.

Here are 10 scriptures about REST. May they bless your heart and mine. May we find rest in the One who gives it freely to us. May we learn to cast our cares to Jesus and let Him bear all of our burdens for us as we REST in the perfect peace He provides for us. Yep, RIP, right here on earth. Thank You Jesus!

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Day 29: L I F E

L…..LOVE

I……IMBIBED

F…..FOR

E…..EVER

Let’s drink in the gift of God through Jesus Christ, His Son. This is LIFE. It is a gift. In this world there is an attack on life.  It is a true miracle any of us are alive at all. As we live, may you and I be thankful for the very air we get to breathe and remember God’s keeping power over us. May we receive the gift of eternal LIFE through Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross. It is where we, being in Christ, have died so that we may be made ALIVE in Him all our days.
