My third blog

Posted by Dawn at Friday, September 05, 2014
Introducing to you my new blog - Find rest in the Lord.

Why I named this blog (as well as the blog address) as such  is because I noticed how busy most people are- going from places to places, filling their lives with lots of activities, striving and many grow weary and tired. At some point in your busyness, struggles and tiredness, you may start to wonder why are you doing what you are doing.

This year, God has been speaking to me about the word, "rest "and its not just physical sleep He is talking about, but more importantly, spiritual rest. I have seen my worship leader in church serving every week  for consecutive about 7 times in a row. Its not easy as there are weekday practices and on Sunday, there are two services having to reach church at 730am all the way serving till second service to about 2pm. In addition to that, when you are on stage as the worship leader, you need to think how to flow in worship, the dynamics of the band and the responses from the congregation. So when she was sharing about the topic on "rest", she mentioned that she do not feel tired at all as she learned to trust in God completely. She allows the Holy Spirit to guide her when she is on stage to give her the directions. We just need to enter into God's Rest and trust God completely to take control.

So my hope and prayer for you is that you will come to know of your Creator and Heavenly Father, reconcile your relationship with Him so that you can enter into God's rest. Rest in God is not inactivity, but God-directed activity which it will be these three words for you- REST, EASY, LIGHT

In the Bible, Jesus says, " Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30)
