Rest Easy

Ben, our 6-year-old dog
"You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in You."
~Isaiah 26:3

Good morning, friends!  On this sun-soaked morning, our sky is full of blue.  The leaves outside my window are in full-change mode; most on the ground, brown and crisp, while the more persistent of the bunch still cling tightly to the trees.  Their colors are all shades of the spectrum of fall hues.  And inside our dog Ben cozily sleeps in his favorite chair, resting peacefully.

It is Friday.  An end to another week.  Where is your mind, your heart?  Are you able to rest them, to lay them still and dwell in peace? 

"In Him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in His holy name.
May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord,
even as we put our hope in you."
~Psalm 34:21-22

The God of all creation desires that you find rest today; peace.  He is calling you to draw near to Him, to rest in His lovingkindness which never fails and His mercies which are new every morning.  Call out to Him in your times of trouble and unease.  Call, and then trust. 

He is faithful.  He is good.  And He is ever caring for you.

Enjoy today,
