  1. Praise God for the rest He gives us! I am ever so thankful for weekends & just resting my tired weary body!

    Also thankful for this blog & for my church!

  2. More than just physical “resting,” we need the rest for our spirit from the burdens of the world that always clamor for our attention. I find when I rest in my spirit, I find the joy and strength that the Lord provides. Focusing on the Lord and enjoying His presence always brings me into His rest. Wonderful scripture to thoroughly digest.

  3. Thank you for the reminder of the difference between Jesus’ promises for rest. I can come to him anytime as an “emergency center” and he will give me rest. But if I am willing to make him the center of my life, yoke myself to him, and learn from him, he will give me rest for my soul. That is the rest that recreates me in his likeness. That is the rest I long for.
