Rest

Time to be honest here.

Do you rest? 

And I don't mean, do you rest, because that would be a no from... all of us. But, I mean do you rest in Christ. Do you give everything to Him and you just sit. Or do you yourself try to be God. 

Most of the time, if I'm honest, I do not rest in God. I'm doing everything and anything to make sure it gets done, when God is just saying, rest. Give me all of that and rest. 

Yeah, I hear you God, but that is so hard, right? 

But here's what I want you to try to do, and believe me, I'm doing this with you. Because God has been speaking to me about rest for awhile now. 

First, whatever you are trying to handle on your own, take it off and hand it to Christ. 

Second, just pray. Ask God to help ou with all these things. He is able. He is good. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. 

And lastly, rest. 

It sounds easy, but it's not. It's really hard to just rest in God and just know He has it under control. 

But, I pray for all of us as we try to rest in Him as this week continues. He loves you and He wants you to rest and just trust that He has this. 

"Come to Me, all you are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
