Mark 6:31

He said to them, "Come with Me by yoursleves to a quiet place and get some rest."
Mark 6:31

This verse is one I came across today and it kind of hit me. I've been on the go for so many weeks and haven't really done my daily Bible study like I know I should. After reading this verse I realized how important it is to just stop and listen to what God is telling me. I'm praying that this week brings me rest and closer to my Lord.

I was able to go to Greenbrier and visit with family and physically rest this weekend. I also have tomorrow off of school and work and will finally be able to catch up on my house cleaning and more physical rest. I'm thankful for the rest God has provided me so far this week.

The spiritual rest I so desperately need is what I thought of the most when reading this verse today. I need to rest in my Saviour's arms more, trust in Him to supply my needs more, and take comfort in knowing He will never leave me. My heart needs rest from the struggles I've been battling and I know that that rest will only come from Him, and only after I give it all to Him. Here's to giving it all to Him....

What do you need rest from? Go to God and find the rest you need.
