Day 12: To Lie Down And Rest — 17 Comments

  1. I’m so glad the Lord is bringing you rest. We mothers aren’t used to it, are we? I’ve had to learn too. And it makes me a more pleasant, calm person to be around when I listen to my body and stop “doing”. Lifting you and your family up in my prayers, Barbie!

  2. Thank you for this post. I often know when I need to rest and say it when I know that I need it, yet, I continue to go and go. I find it hard to rest and always tell others I know what rest means, but I just cannot do it. I keep telling myself I better learn to rest or else the Lord will make me rest.

    It is important that we perform temple maintenance and take care of the of the one body we are given. Rest ! Rest! Rest!

  3. Resting – waiting – doing nothing is difficult for us. We feel like we should always be doing something. I hope that I’m not alone in that. But I do find that I am more refreshed when I am resting in the Lord. Funny how that works out hmm?

    thanks for this reminder!


  4. Such a wonderful post. So important to rest and take care of ourselves. But sometimes easier said than done. I needed this reminder too! Thanks!!

  5. Thankful for this process of restoration for you, Barbie. Praying that God will give you the strength, patience and wisdom you need during this time. PS I was so thrilled to read about the twitter #fmf pray-a-thon in your honor! God is so good!

  6. Barbie,
    What a Beautiful posts and one I think everyone needs! It especially spoke to me today! Thank you for your ministry and I will pray for God’s guidance for your new job!

  7. The waiting – some of the hardest moments in a change, but also some of the most critical. We have to go through the middle to allow change to happen. To cross the bridge from our old live to our new one. Praying for you in your transition!
