Can you sit still? I mean really stop and do nothing?

I cannot. Well, I am better than I used to be, but I have to stay busy. Or do I?

In my quest/need/desire to stay busy, I miss REST.

I am not talking about the type of rest we need to be healthy, although there is total validity in that…I am talking about the type of REST that allows me to be all God created me to be.

I can quit striving, quit trying, quit doing and simply listen. I have missed plenty by being so busy. I have crowded out His voice time and time again. I don’t do it on purpose. None of us do….we are just used to noise and activity.


R……relying on
      T……to Him alone.


That is it. Relying on and establishing surrender to Him alone….allow Christ to be my life. Inside, outside, backward, forwards. Not an effort…but a surrender and allowing Him to be the very air I breathe.

So stop….

and REST.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
