Rest

“If you want rest come to Christ in Gethsemane, to Christ on Calvary, to Christ risen, to Christ ascended. If you want rest, O weary souls, ye can find it nowhere until ye come and lay your burdens down at His dear pierced feet, and find life in looking alone to Him.”
– Charles Spurgeon

My soul is weary.
My heart is burdened.
My body is aching.
My emotions are fragile.
My mind is a whirlwind.
My fears are staggering.
My faith is weak.

My Jesus is ENOUGH.

  1. Dear Sweet Angie,

    You never cease to amaze me! You are always able, no matter what the circumstanaces, to reach out… reach up, and hold on with incredible strength and faith. You are an amazing witness and testimony to the goodness and faithfulness of our God. May He who loves you deeply lift you UP, UP, UP…and hold you CLOSE, CLOSE, CLOSE…. Loving you from the great – beautiful fall-colored and dripping in gorgeous leaves..northwest! Jan

  4. My dear Angie,

    May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing that you may dwell in hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

    He is a treasure in your earthen vessel and you are singing forth His praises. To God be the glory.

    Love to you from the love that is poured in our hearts through the Holy Spirit – the love of God.
