Scripture: Hebrews 4: “Those who have believed, do enter the rest of God. ”
As I sit here with no job perhaps after this Friday and perhaps not for semester two or the summer; and yet, I have a rent payment, a car payment, a loan payment, bills, groceries and gas; not to mention all the other things that I do in my life – that I could give up, but don’t really want to.
How am I at peace at this very moment? Why I am not anxious, worried or ruminating? Because I am determined to REST. Which means, not that worried thoughts do not come up and enter my mind about these things – but every time it happens, I literally swipe my hands like I’m sweeping with a broom – and I sweep, sweep it away and replace it this scripture:
The Lord is my shepherd
and I shall not be in want
Believe IN God – the someone who wants good for us
Not IN something – that may or may not be good for us!
