Rest With Me A While

Briefly: A few weeks ago, I ruptured my Achilles tendon while playing softball. I had surgery four days later and since then, I've pretty much been immobile and relying on my crutches and the help of friends and family for my needs. I'll have to wear a cast until the end of August, then I'll be fitted for a "boot." After the "boot," physical therapy. Needless to say, my life has taken a drastic turn due to this injury; believe it or not. I'll write more about the revelation I've been receiving day-to-day, along with the many lessons, struggles, tears and joys I've experienced, later on...

Today, I wanted to introduce a book/devotional I've been reading, daily, called "Jesus Calling," by Sarah Young. It's a book of short prophetic devotionals - nothing too deep, but the words definitely tug at your heart and seems to help quiet my spirit before the Lord. Here's what I read this morning:

"Rest with Me a while. You have journeyed up a steep, rugged path in recent days. The way ahead is shrouded in uncertainty. Look neither behind you nor before you. Instead, focus your attention on Me, your constant Companion. Trust that I will equip you fully for whatever awaits you on your journey. I designed time to be a protection for you. You couldn't bear to see all your life at once. Though I am unlimited by time, it is in the present moment that I meet you. Refresh yourself in My company, breathing deep droughts of My Presence. The highest level of trust is to enjoy Me moment by moment. I am with you, watching over you where you go."

Psalm 143:8, Genesis 28:15

More from me, later.

Wow!! That is amazing! It really did quiet me and set me at peace. I guess that's what letting God take control of your life is. :) Just one huge life of peace in the storm. Thank you for sharing that!! Sorry you are injured. :( I fell getting out of the shower last month and hurt my ankle and that wasn't any fun and it only lasted about a week and a half. I'll be praying for your recovery. Have a greatly blessed day!! love you!
