REST, Rejoice and Praise in 2012

7 01 2012

I am getting ready to do the first Igniting the Kingdom ~ The Shalom Blessing gathering in seven weeks! This has been a nine month process and I feel like I am spiritually giving birth!


As I worked on my timeline calendar I found myself writing what was most important in a reminder box. Rest in God, Rejoice with God and Praise Him! These three things are very important in 2012!


The word rest can mean several things, to sleep, to lean, and what remains. The latter is how we think of rest, what we do after all else is accomplished.


We don’t think about the importance of rest, yet our bodies require 6 – 8 hours of sleep out of every 24. We can’t function for long without sleep and rest. Stress steals our ability to rest, which is why we must take time to rest. For years the month of January has been a month of rest for me, this year is different for I am gearing up for this gathering.


God has made it very clear that resting in Him is first on my to-do list! It isn’t about journaling, it is all about resting in Him. I get this wonderful picture of floating in the water and casting my cares on Jesus as He floats me down the gentle stream.


The Psalmist tell us, Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. PS 62:5


Join me next time when we talk about Rejoicing with God!
