When I started Bonnie Gray’s book Finding Spiritual Whitespace, I had no clue where my journey would lead me, or what God would speak to my heart. I did know however, that I wanted to make a blog series out of this book, and share my Journey to Rest with you.
My first post told you about a childhood experience that lead me to embracing a falsehood about rest.
My second post addressed a letter to my younger self, denouncing the lies I’ve embraced about not only rest, but also about myself as a whole.
As I’m learning to rest, I’m struggling, yet giving in & choosing to fully embrace the words Bonnie shares in her book:
“Jesus is Waiting.
I stop easily for others.
Will I stop long enough for me?”
So friend, I’m stopping for me.
This week, instead of forging ahead with my planned four-part series, I am pausing to REST.
I’m tired, weary & worn out. This week has held challenges I didn’t expect, along with the emotional & mental stress to be expected. I need time to rest & fuel up again with Jesus, so I can share His goodness with you!
If you’re having a rough week as well, I hope you’ll rest with me & then meet back here again next week for part three of my Journey to Rest.
Praying you find shelter under the shadow of His wings. (Psalm 17:8)
This post is a ::pause:: within a series entitled, “Journey to Rest”.
