times of rest.
There is a quietness of spirit that awaits us; a dwelling place of restful assurance for our souls. Where is it, you ask? It is in the quiet confidence of the provision of a faithful Father. As the milk-satisfied infant rests on it's mother's breast after a feed; we are provided quiet places of rest in the Lord's provision. What does your week look like, knowing that the Lord will provide what you need, when you need it; to richly satisfy you and to help you grow strong? What does it look like to know that He will be there when you are next hungry? That a time is coming when you will rise in strength, with energy and joy, to do the works that make your heart sing?
Let your spirit grow quiet.
Are you empty?
He is there, waiting to feed you with words of life.
Are you tired?
Rest against His goodness; lean your whole frame upon it.
Are you worried for the future?
Do not fret; He has gone ahead and has already provided what you will need in that season.
Are you despairing?
Perhaps you need to rest. The time is coming when your energy will be full once more. The sun will shine, the birds will sing and your heart will take joy once more.
Let your soul become quiet.
He is here.
'Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul,
Like a weaned child with his mother;
Like a weaned child is my soul within me.'
