The Beauty of Renewal and Rest

Genuine, Complete Rest in Christ

We are surrounded by the beauty and power of God. Through His creation, we are offered glimpses of His glory, and through His Word and His presence we are offered the blessings of rest and renewal from the busy chaos that screams for our attention.

Every day, we are offered a deep, genuine, lasting rest, but sadly, in our hurried, busy lives, we too often miss it…in our rush to get everything done, we miss Him.

But when we pause, take time to see the beauty around us, we will see glimpses of glory. When we spend time in His presence, we will always find rest and renewal. We will always find God when we seek Him for He never leaves us. He is always with us and always loves us~always!

God wants to touch your life today. He is calling to you and desires to bless you with His presence, His love, His peace, and His goodness. I know you’re busy. I know your schedule is full and there isn’t enough time to get it all done. I know fear, doubt and worry creep in overshadowing all else.

But in God’s strength, filled with His love, refreshed in His grace, you will find renewal. Dear one, you will find rest. Somehow, miraculously, if you make Him the priority, give Him your devotion and time, He will not only encourage you, He will transform you. He will take your weaknesses and equip you to accomplish His plan for you.

Spend time with God today. There’s no expectation of perfection or set rules to follow. Just seek Him. He is faithful and He will meet with you. Spend time in His Word, be renewed, refreshed, and encouraged, and get a glimpse of His glory… You won’t regret a single moment!

Prayer at HIS feet~

Lord, You are glorious and Your glory surrounds me. Help me not rush through my day and miss the beauty and majesty of You. Help me not be so consumed with my plans that I miss out on Yours. Lord, would You teach me to put You first. Flood my life with joy and peace and teach me to praise You regardless of my circumstances. The darkness of this world is no match for Your brilliant light. Strengthen me and equip me to stand strong against the enemy and bless me with victory. Shine Your light in my life, flood me with joy and peace, teach me to praise You regardless of my circumstances.

Personal Reflection: What lies am I believing? What is God revealing to me in His Word. How do I overcome darkness?

I pray you are blessed beyond measure…and please don’t forget to like and share ❤


Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. (John 1:3-5, NIV).
