Rest

Like the bench at the end of a shaded path, God beckons that we come to Him for rest.

Sometimes it seems we have a lot to say, or come to God with our head full of scriptures, or we have the answer and are just looking for validation. Let's try it the other way around - let's just come to Him and find rest.

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Photo by Elizabeth)

The bench looks so inviting! Love this photo and your thought for the day too.

I love that bench! Just my sort of corner for sitting in.

Sometimes rest is so difficult, our inner "demons" keep us moving, working, fidgeting until we are too weary to care any longer.

What a wonderful post! Thank you for the wonderful reminder to come to Him and be with Him (not with our own agenda).
Thanks for all your sweet encouragement.
