Is there anything more peaceful than the face of a sleeping child? Do you ever yearn for that kind of “peaceful rest”? The beautiful image of a sleeping baby visually reminds me of where real REST can be found- only in the creator of that beautiful child, our Father. Just before Christmas, as I was busying myself with my “to do list” for the season and feeling very behind in completing what I thought needed to be done, I was stopped in my tracks by this scripture verse- “I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
We have the assurance we can find true “rest” in Him- even in the midst of unrest in our world. Turning our concerns over to Him, we know that He will accomplish what really needs to take place each and every day. His hand of protection is upon us. What a relief!
We can REST in His promise found in Proverbs 16:3, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”
