The Rest God Offers Us

The Rest God Offers

God’s rest for us involves freedom – to trust, to live out his dream for us, to work, create, play, let go and move on.

The rest God offers is the freedom to be fully present in the moment, free to reflect and enjoy what has been; to let go of the deficits and regrets that wear us down; free to envision what will be, what we are being re-created for; free to unburden ourselves of regretful thoughts about our yesterdays and anxious thoughts about our tomorrows.
