The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, and he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. —Psalm 23:1–3
"I built into your very being the need for rest," says the Lord. I have been such a busy person for most of my life, that I have taught myself to feel guilty about meeting this basic need to rest. And more importantly, I have taught myself to ignore my mind's signal when it tells me to rest. Well, that season is now over!
Lord Jesus thanks for helping me over and over with this proven deadly addiction. How much time and energy I have waste by being always on the go and doing more than I should do to support the belief that "I am good enough."
But now, post cancer, very excitedly, I have been called to walk with God down paths of peaceful living, joyful living, restful living and all three are we required for balance living. I rejoice at my future; my assignment is to become a daily living example of a person that dwells daily in God's peaceful, joyful and restful presence.
It so comforting knowing that the more I depend on The Holy Spirit, the more I am showered with joy, peace and rest. Thanks you, Father God!
