Enter Into The Gates Of His Rest
Do you ever become troubled by the trials and heartaches of life? It is 1:30 in the morning and my heart is heavy for those I love. For my brother-in-law who is battling cancer. For my daughter and grandchildren who are hurting because someone they love has given up on life again. For my son-in-law who is in a dark place in his mind and spirit. For family and friends who are sick and hurting. For a nation that has drifted so far away from God and His truth. I look around at the heartaches and know that the only hope we have is in Christ. He is the answer for all our trials and heartaches if we will just call upon Him and trust Him to direct our path.
I know I am not the only one out there whose heart is heavy for those they love and for the trials they are facing. My prayers are lifted up for each of you as I know you also will lift me and my loved ones up in prayer. Jesus said we are to cast all our cares upon Him for He cares for us. Our peace is only found in Him and I know, I know without a doubt that He holds each of us in His hands.
So let us praise our Savior Jesus Christ for His love, forgiveness and comfort. Let us thank Him for always being there. No matter what we face in life we know without a doubt that we will never face it alone. In His promises we can always find security and comfort. Let us enter into the gates of His rest.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Matthew 11:28-29 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Amen and Amen! God Bless each of you, my friends. ~Jeanette
