tuesday text v1 3000x1704

Thought to share: I AM not militant, demanding that you never feel anxious, stressed or pain. I AM not disappointed in you when emotions surge through your heart and overwhelm you. I do not expect you to be robotic and never feel. Instead, I AM compassionate towards you, inviting you to give ME your weighty, negative, gut-wrenching emotions. You were not designed to carry those. Give them to ME, and in exchange, I will give you peace, relief and rest.

Matthew 11:28 (TPT) Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to Me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.

1Peter 5:7 (TPT) Pour out all your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there, for He always tenderly cares for you.

Jeremiah 31:25 (Msg)  I’ll refresh tired bodies; I’ll restore tired souls.

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.
