Refreshing Your Soul

The Almighty makes me lie down in green pastures. God leads me beside still waters.  He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Names’ sake…”

Psalm 23:2-3

Yesterday I was given a remarkable gift: rest. You see I, like many of you, live my life in overdrive 24/7.  There’s always something more to do, someone else to care for, another crisis to deal with.

Yesterday God gave me the gift of rest.

Oh don’t get me wrong; the day started just as hectic as any other, at 4 am.  But the morning brought God’s healing grace over my soul.  I had positive conversations regarding these texts and who they are reaching. We are creating a new support group for caregivers and a bit of good financial news for the churches’ feeding ministry.   I drove to a secluded spot at Atsion lake to record a video devotional and felt God’s peace as the water rippled.

You see God led me to a tranquil place to breathe in Creation and pause. God restored my soul at the water’s edge and gave me rest.

Please take a moment today to appreciate some of the little things in your life, and pause.

Refreshment of your spirit is waiting…

Praying with you…
