Rest. The picture above is one of complete trust and rest. We are on the way to the beach and the weenie dog is curled up in my lap on a pillow. She is at rest. She is not concerned about the traffic flying by outside the truck windows. She is not concerned about the tradition of blowing a tire EVERY time we go to the beach (tradition held true this trip also-on the way home).
What would it be like to experience rest this complete every day? Do you realize this is how He intends for us to actually live? Unconcerned about the world flying around outside our doors. Completly trusting Him and His will for our lives. Doing the work He has called us to do, living every day in the freedom and rest that He has given to us.
Do you claim this rest He has blessed us with? I must confess that I don't, not usually. I am looking around me, trying to figure out the best way to make life situations go my way...not resting in Him. What about you?
