Our Resting Place

Jesus reminded me of something this morning as I layed in bed doing my devotions. What a place of rest He can be. Sometimes I find myself running and running, trying to get the business of my life taken care of. But there will always be errands to run, a job, a house to clean, obligations in my life. My prayer would be that I carefully take the time to recognize that God is bigger than all of it. He is like a comfy chair you can go sit on, or a soft pillow you can lay your head on. I am tired of wishing time away. I am tired of having count downs. It is fun to have things to look forward to, but I am far too guilty of wishing hours, days, weeks, and years away in my life. Lord make me a woman who appreciates the day you have given her, and make it so I can enjoy the moments I have right in front of me. Give me energy to get through every day, and give me the strength to live every day for you, reflecting your image. Forgive me for not having a more thankful heart, for I am truly so blessed. I pray that your joy would be within me, overflowing on my roommates, my YoungLife girls, my family, my friends. You have given me responsibilities, and I pray that I would not take these responsibilities lightly, and that I would do them to the best of my ability. Thank you Jesus, for being my rock, and my foundation that I have chosen to set my feet upon. I know you are never going anywhere and it is in you that I need to daily find my worth and satisfaction, not in the things that this world has to offer. Those things only bring death. Be my first true love Jesus. Thank you for your presence in my life, and the way you care for me. You never give up on me, your grace comes again and again. I love you my Savior my Lord.

Love and Living a Life Pleasing to God
