Thought to share: you are in the perfect place; right in the center of MY heart. Surrounded by MY love and protected by MY strength, there is no better place to be. You have no need to fear and no concern for provision. All you need is found in ME, and you are living in ME. You are living inside Love, Protection, Strength, Peace and Provision. There is no need to strive, just receive.

Colossians 3:3 (NLT) For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. (emphasis mine)
Psalm 91 (NLT) Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the LORD: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished. If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in My Name. When they call on Me, I will answer;  I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.  I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

Thought to share: Rest. You need rest. Rest for your mind. Rest for your emotions. Rest in your soul. Rest does not mean doing nothing. It is not necessarily the absence of work. Rest is the Presence of Peace. Rest is ME surrounding you. It is MY Being covering you. So enter into rest as you work today. Be at rest as you live life. Let ME engulf you with MY Presence and surround you with MY Peace.

Matthew 11:28-30 (Message) Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
Jeremiah 31:25 (NLT) For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing.

Thought to share: Waiting is not easy. When the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months and the months turn into years, it is easy to become disheartened. In your discouragement, you often wonder where I AM. You doubt MY promises are true. You question whether or not I heard you or want to take care of you. But today, I remind you that I AM faithful. I encourage you to rest patiently in ME. I assure you, I AM at work and MY timing is perfect. The waiting is not wasted, because I waste nothing. There is treasure in the waiting. So trust ME – it’s all coming together at just the right time.

Psalm 27:14 (NLT) Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.

James 5:7-8 (The Message) Meanwhile, friends, wait patiently for the Master’s Arrival. You see farmers do this all the time, waiting for their valuable crops to mature, patiently letting the rain do its slow but sure work. Be patient like that. Stay steady and strong.
