As I began to pray about what to write about today, I felt that there was a great need for rest among the body of Christ. What I mean by rest is the act of resting in His presence. It is easy to get caught up in the every changing, ever-packed schedules that we all have come to know. When this rushing takes place it allows for chaos and exhaustion to occur. This often results in us trying to fix the problems, instead of relying on God. When we are running on empty, we need to seek the Lord and let Him fill our cups. I have a passage that resonates with me, and I believe it will with you, too. It is simple and it is true. It is about God’s character. He is constant. Reflect on these words this week:
“Let nothing upset you, Let nothing startle you. All things pass; God does not change. Patience wins all it seeks. Whoever has God lacks nothing. God alone is enough.”
- St. Teresa
I challenge you to sit (or lay face planted on the floor, whatever works for you!), and take time daily to soak in His word, to soak in His truth, and to let His Holy Spirit fall afresh on you.
