Some weeks leave me completely zapped and the end of the week can not seem to come soon enough. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m over that visualized “hill” of 50, but it seems life is happening at breakneck speeds never moving outside of the HOV lane. I look out my window and everyone seems to be focused full speed ahead, but never satisfied with their journey.
“To whom He said, This is the rest where with ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.” Isaiah 28:12
As the rain is coming down, the temptation for a lazy morning with an extra cup of coffee reminds me that as a believer in Jesus Christ I have a source of rest.
“For we which have believed do enter into rest” Hebrews 4:3
So for this morning, I’m going to sit here and soak in the sounds of the rain, drinking each little drop of my coffee, while God brings about rest in my soul.
“Take my yoke upon your, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Matthew 11:29
“There remains therefore a rest to the people of God.” Hebrews 4:9
