Dig Into my Rest!

Evidently the squirrel my neighbor saw in our yard was digging like he was looking for buried treasure.  He might know something we don’t know about what is in there.

I watched another squirrel fight my bird house deterrent as if he was in battle.  No, it was most likely not the same because I have seen the quads working in tandem on several mornings.

They are young squirrels who argue in trees, chase each other and apparently enjoy digging quite a bit.

The Father spoke to my heart as I watched them.

“Dig In to my Rest.”

In the midst of all the chaos that has surrounded us for several months, in the midst of all the uncertainty that seems to be our future….

The Father reminded me that religion won’t hold me up.  Legalism won’t hold me up.  Political correctness or incorrectness won’t hold me up.  The government won’t hold me up.  

Nothing of this world will hold me up.

So we have to dig in.  Just like the squirrels that trust their digging will actually reap benefits.  They dig in without knowing the outcome.  They live their life, trusting their provider.

We have to trust that He is who He says He is…

We have to trust that He will do what He said He will do…

We have to trust that we are who He says we are…

We have to trust that His word is alive and active in our lives…

And We just have to rest in it all.

It feels weird, we don’t know the outcome, we honestly can not even make plans.

But, we can Dig In and 

Rest in Christ.

The squirrels may have if figured out after all.


I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. – Jeremiah 31:25
