In repentance and rest…

This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel says,

“In repentance and rest is your salvation;

In quietness and trust is your strength…”

Isaiah 30:15

I never thought that one of the most exhausting things ever would be learning to REST.

Physically. Just sit there. Be unproductive. (A terrifying thing for people like me.)

Spiritually. Repent. Develop a quiet spirit. Trust. (Even more terrifying. Much, much more.)

But I’m learning. And you wanna know what happens?

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.

Acts 3:19

Aaahhh. My soul is sittin’ in the shade with a good book and tall glass of ice water. I’d love for you to join me.

Finally, sunshine.

Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. 

– Hans Christian Andersen

 The sun came out today. FINALLY. 

The flowers are brilliant after the rain, by the way.

There’s something to be said for a little rain on a droopy flower (or heart).

He is like the light of morning at sunrise on a cloudless morning,

like the brightness after rain that brings grass from the earth.

– 2 Samuel 23: 4

Oh, and hammocks definitely just made the ‘happy place’ list.
