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.

So…….

R……relying on
   E……establishing
S……surrender
      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 57 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer, part time office manager, part time writer... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 41 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we are going to become grandparents to a baby girl in August!! First time grandparents and we are over the moon! 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, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
