Resting in Christ

'....the Lord does not say to us, “Come unto me all ye that labor and I will give you a mile-long checklist, the completion of which is necessary in order to earn my approval and love.”
What he does say is, “come unto me all ye that labor and I will give you rest.” '

Thanks for the reminder. I need to re-read that entire post. Patty is so profound!

Sorry the link to the actual article no longer works. I can't take credit for any part of it... the quote at the beginning was part of the article. I enjoyed re-reading just that part anyways! I, too, needed that reminder!

Yup.For some time now I've been thinking that my personal prayers are really a list of those things upon which I ruminate and obsess.I'm working on allowing God's rest to come into my soul.At least I'm beginning to understand that it is appropriate to rest and allow God to get on with His work.
