Feeling Restless?

Sunday Scripture

and a


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


My Lord, take from me

My restless thoughts

My restless dreams

My restless life

And fill me

With peace

As only




If you're feeling restless, know that you can rest your cares
 in the God who loves you. 
It doesn't matter what you've done, who you are
 or where you've been.
You only have to call on His name; and rest assured that
 He will hear your call.

God's Great Grace and Love

The snowy view from my window this morning
Sunday Scripture

and a


"The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing."

Zephaniah 3:17

There is no thought more beautiful to me than that of God singing over me with His love.

God's great grace, the gift of His unmerited favor as manifested in the salvation of sinners and bestowal of His blessings,
is given freely to all who call on His name.
Glory to God
and praise and thanksgiving
for this undeserved gift.

To know our Almighty Savior is always with us, and that He will never leave us, is a comfort and an inexplicable joy.

Here is a song for you by Citizen Way, "How Sweet the Sound" that reminds us of God's great love and the beauty of knowing we are never alone. God is always with us, and He will always love us. No matter what. Praise be to God!

Lord, I need You

Sunday Scripture

and a


"Seek the Kingdom of God above all else,
 and he will give you everything you need."
Luke 12:31 (NLT)

Too many times we find ourselves racing around, trying to "do it all" and probably failing (in our own opinion) because we have such high expectations of what we should accomplish.

Have you ever paused long enough to ask, "God, what should I be doing right now? What is most important, and what can I let go?"

Sometimes we tend to put our mind ahead of our heart; kind of like putting the cart before the horse. 

If we do not pause to find our center to discern what direction we should be going, then we are going forward on our own agenda. Or perhaps in our attempt to try to please everyone, we forget to first figure out what is best for our own selves. 

If we have not first "checked-in" with our inner source of strength, how will we ever get to where we need to be going?

The result of going forward without our inward direction is often frustration and negativity, or blame and anger. Sometimes we just feel lost.

Other times, sorrow engulfs us in our weakness, and we feel so all alone. 

Each and every time, we must reach out for help. And God alone is always there for us. 

If we can maintain a mind-set to always consult God first, we would find we have a better chance of finding success from our efforts.

Remember where your Source is, and what feeds your soul. Take care of yourself from the inside out, and the items on your to-do list that need to be accomplished will get done.

What is left over will be done tomorrow. 

Take time to find your center, and to ask God, your source of strength, to guide you in the direction He would have you follow.

I know I can't do this life alone. God, I Need You.
