Fridays mean we play with words, pour out our hearts in 5 minutes or less.
My heart longs to be rest assured in all that I am; to rest assured that I am enough because He is enough. I want to settle in and hunker down in a mound of pillows and blankets ready to rest in His goodness. I know that I know that I know that He is good. He has good plans. He’s even giddy over these things coming my way and your way. Those moments inundated with peace and goodness is where you’ll find me resting. Laying my sweet head down filled with tears and questions yet one more time because waiting hurts and trusting in this is still hard for me. But, oh there, in the rest assuredness of His love is where my heart longs to be and that’s where I’m running even when I want to rest in the arms of Ben and Jerry’s or in the guise of another workout. The rest that comes from either of those fades quickly to the background and leaves me feeling empty and guilty. Ah, rest, I’m ready for the freedom that comes with the resting. I so desire the freedom in resting in who I am. Being okay with me and where God has placed me.
5 minutes ticks away fast on these days.
Your turn! What do you ponder about rest?
