God can give us true rest. By consciously choosing to rest like a child in their mother’s arms, in the arms of  God I can find rest.


This does not mean that we pretend. Grief is real, so is pain, and so are challenges of various types.


We can find peace by reminding ourselves to rest in the security of God’s unconditional love even though there are strains and challenges that each day brings.


As we look back at the day that is ending we can see unfulfilled plans…maybe the day was fragmented…maybe there were disappointments for various reasons…maybe there are things I am embarrassed or even ashamed of…I  am invited to take everything as it is exactly as it is and put it into God’s loving hands.


Then we can rest in God, really rest and start a new day with God…


As a new life…
