Moment of Reflection: Finding Rest in the Lord

It’s March 19th, 2019 and I find my heart reflecting on the following:

When we feel lost, and like our way is uncertain, we can find rest in the Lord. When our hearts are heavy, and we’re unsure how to move forward, we can find rest in the Lord. When it would be easy to sink into our frailty, we can find rest in the Lord. When decisions are required, and risks abound, we can proceed with courage and find rest in the Lord.

As a husband, father and therapist I find myself continually becoming aware of the complexities of life. Yet, one thing stands out above them all. In the midst of utter chaos that tries to prevail, it shall not, for I know that rest, strength and victory are found in the Lord.

I’ll end with Nehemiah’s encouragement to the nobles, officials and the rest of the people who were working to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and found their hearts weighed down:

“Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
Nehemiah 4:14

May we daily allow our hearts to find rest in the wondrous God we serve.
