Devotional Monday: Rest
Rest is the theme this month and i am so excited to dig in and soak up all that God has for us. So with that being said, today I want to talk more about rest. As you know our mission statement is "encouraging women to find rest in God." To me that's what it's all about, finding rest in him and his word. When Hillary and I decided to do this blog a year ago, we knew that we wanted it to place where women could come to find rest in God and his word.
When I think of rest i think of sitting in my favorite spot and opening up my bible and soaking up his word. I also think of the words of our foundation verse Matthew 11:28-30, where God tells us to rest our weary souls in him. He is the place that we should go to when the world get's to be too much, or were so stressed out that were going to explode. He is our resting spot, our place to lay our head down.
John 15:4 says-"Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me." Remain in him, as you go throughout your day, remain in him when your stressed. Rest in his unfailing love, Rest your weary soul in him.
Where do you find rest in the midst of a busy life?
