Rest in Surrender — 14 Comments

  1. Beautiful post.. And a timely read for me given my stage of life. Surrendering everything to God is always…. ALWAYS…. the hardest part for me. I pray (beg, lol) for help every day but actually surrendering the stress, anxiety, etc… that doesn’t always happen.

    Thanks for this great post, Barbie.

  2. Such a beautiful post!  It is true.  True rest can only be delivered by God.  So thankful that helps my heart to be at rest.  Thanks for stopping over and commenting on my blog on Friday too!

  3.  A lovely picture of rest.  Letting go.  It’s amazing how he can give us such peace in the midst of such activity.  I find when I start my day in quiet with him, miraculously it is carried with me throughout the day.

  4. Oh my,  this is so beautiful! Just what I needed to hear. I love reading your 5 minute Friday posts. THANK YOU for sharing your gift with us!
    Sweet blessings
    Cindy 🙂

  5. We are thinking a like today, Barbie. 😉  And you touched on something else the Lord has been speaking to me about – surrender.  There is peace and rest in surrendering completely to Him.  What a beautiful truth!  Many blessings!

  6. So true, Barbie…rest is not necessarily ceasing from activity but about finding Him in that quiet place and taking refuge there, no matter our physical circumstances.

    Happy weekend! 🙂

  7. Surrender!  That’s the key, but what I struggle with the most!  I love Psalm 17:8.  I think that’s the first time I’ve read that verse.

    Thank you so much for sharing!  Have a good weekend!

    • I can be very stubborn and want to hold onto things.  But once I give it all to Him (where it belongs anyways) it makes entering that rest so much easier!  Have a beautiful weekend.
