If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Rest

Today is Day 11 of the 31 Day Writing Challenge with a prompt from Five Minute Friday. The prompt for today is "Rest."

I personally believe that rest is very important. Working all week and then coming home to cook, clean the house, do laundry, etc can get very tiresome. Our bodies need a time to rest and relax. But not only do our bodies need to rest, so do our minds.

Sometimes I just can feel completely overwhelmed in my mind. It's flitting from here to there to everywhere, thinking about all kinds of things. Some thoughts are important and some are not. Some thoughts are worrisome and worry can flat just wear me out. I don't know about you, but sometimes I can get way more tired by my thoughts than I do by physical labor.

I guess that's why I am looking so forward to our vacation trip next month to the beach. There, I can unwind and I can rest my mind and know that there is nothing I need to worry about for a few weeks. The beach is one of the places that calm me most. I can't help but just think about God and His majesty when I watch the ocean. The beauty and the grandeur just amazes me. I find when I'm at the beach I spend a lot more time considering God and a lot less time worrying.  My plans are to rest in Him.


If all goes as planned this is the view I will be seeing

  1. You summed up my feelings about the beach perfectly. I can literally feel the burdens lift when we cross the bridge over onto Hilton Head Island.

  2. Easily one of ,my favorite spots as well. Sitting on my favorite beach chair with my toes dug into the sand and watching the waves come and go on the shore, the smells soo unique to there, the sun warm on my skin and the cool ocean breezes in my face is soo calming and relaxing to me and speak sooo much of the majesty of God. I feel at perfect rest there. ENJOY your time there!

  3. How wonderful to be looking forward to your beach trip. I know that my worries make me tired and the last few days I have been going to bed very early and sleeping nearly 9 hours each night!
