Return To Me And Rest — 25 Comments

  1. Barbie, what a beautiful post! What comes to my mind is Matthew 11:28-30. Yes, we can find rest for our weary souls …in Him.

    Blessings and love my friend,

  2. Dear Barbie,
    I can so relate…Recently sang this song this weekend and it speaks to what you just wrote so honestly about: not sure who the author is but here is part of the lyrics: “I’m restless till I rest in You, till I rest in You, O God… Tell me who You are, You are the keeper of my heart.” Yes, only in Him will be find the rest we need…hugs to you 🙂

  3. Loved this post, Barbie. Experiencing God’s rest is an act of faith. Thanks for the reminders of how we fight it. I am reminded of this verse from Psalm 46–be still and know that I am God. I am so thankful we have a God who wants us to rest in Him! Hopped over from Studio JRU and joined in your hop. What fun!

  4. Dear Barbie
    Are you sure our Pappa spoke to you and not perhaps to me, for I am certain we had the same conversation not long ago!!!? Yes, my friend, it is a partnership, but we are so slow to learn!
    Much love

    • It’s such a privilege, that we get to partner with Him. Why do we resist Him? I am so thankful for His grace. Love to you my friend.

  5. I love that you identify how we treat God like a pestering child. Then you touch on our pride–a huge problem. We could have hundreds of blogs dedicated to the problem of pride and there would be more to be said. I’m sure I have no idea how much of a problem it is in my life. Your post dovetails well with Deb’s on the importance of sleep.

  6. Barbie,
    I needed to read this; I need to read this pretty regularly. Thank you. I am so grateful to have found you at The Beauty in His Grip.
    Peace and good to you, in Jesus’ name.

  7. Barbie! What a wonderful post by you for all of us who fight against the “rest!” I noticed myself this morning, after being afflicted over a week, where I had NO CHOICE , but to rest! Then feeling so much better this morning, HERE (I) GO! In myself! I know there’s a lesson to be learned in all of my experiences. I pray that God would find me no longer resisting the struggle to stop & rest! Thankyou Barbie for sharing your heart! Thankyou for sharing your gift! Thankyou for sharing your love to me; a friendship I cannot even put into words!
