When God Commands Rest

When God Commands Rest

What do you think of when you hear the word, “Rest”? Or “Be still”? Can I be honest and tell you, that those are two of the hardest things for me to do, and yet, I sometimes find myself smack dab in the place where that is what God is asking of me. God’s timing is perfect though. He showed me clearly during a time away a few years ago that it’s not only good to take a time of rest after the weariness of the battle, but He commands it.

My Grown-Up Christmas Wish List

My Grown-Up Christmas Wish List

Have you ever created a wish list for Christmas as a grown-up? This year, what I wanted more than anything for Christmas was peace for my family and peace for my heart. As I read over Philippians 4:6-7, God’s command to tell Him what we need really jumped out at me. What I wanted most was something only He could provide. Asking God for what I need became the impetus for My Grown-Up Christmas Wish List. It’s not just for Christmas, but for the whole upcoming year.
