Bible Reading Plan, Rest

Are you someone that is able to enjoy being "in the moment"? Or are you someone that looks ahead at the "what could happen" moments?









I can honestly say that the Lord has been working to reveal the areas in which I need to slow down and rest.




Lay Those Burdens Down





I have learned that I am someone that will carry burdens the Lord never meant for me to carry. Some of the struggles that I have been dealing with, well, they are self-imposed. I am working hard on correcting that by laying those burdens down.




Another area that I really need help with is being able to slow down enough to be just in the moment.




What I mean by that statement is the Lord blesses me with time to spend with my grandson and for most of the time, I am depressed because I am looking ahead. I have to learn how to slow down enough to be in the moment. Rest in the here and the now. Tomorrow will take care of itself. My worrying over tomorrow or being depressed over what may happen, will not help things at all.




The Lord is saying:






1. Slow down 




Rest in Me. I have control over this, so slow down and rest.









2. Be in this moment 




I have blessed you with this moment. Rest. Be here, right now.




3. Tomorrow is still coming 




I am still in control of tomorrow. Rest in Me. Let go of those worries.




Matthew 6:34 NIV 




Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.




Prayer:




Dear Father, 




Therefore I will not worry about tomorrow, for I know that tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34). Thank You for helping me to slow down and rest. In Jesus' name, Amen. 















Find Rest In Jesus


It Is Okay To Rest


Where Do You Put Your Hope












Are you someone that is able to enjoy being "in the moment"?
Or are you someone that looks ahead at the "what could happen" moments?
How can I pray for you today?
If you will allow it, I will be happy to help carry your load.
