Come To Me... I Will Give You Rest



A simple reminder this week...

Are you weary? Carrying burdens that feel too heavy? God will give you rest.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28

God's Plans Are Best



In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.
Proverbs 16:9

We all try to plan out our lives.

We make plans and get frustrated when things don't turn out how we wanted.

But sometimes things not going as planned is better in the end.

God is always watching over us, and his plans are always best.

Do Not Boast About Tomorrow


Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.
Proverbs 27:1

We shouldn't boast about what we think is going to happen or what we have planned but we should know that this life is temporary.

Everything can change so quickly.

But no matter what changes happen or what gets in the way of what we think is right, God is in control. He sees us and knows us.

We shouldn't boast about our plans for tomorrow but we should look to him to guide us. We should rely on him for every decision that we make.

God is good, and he wants what is best for us. We can trust him with our lives today, tomorrow, and always.

We Will Not Be Destroyed



Even when we feel overwhelmed or afraid, we are not alone.

Even when we feel pressed in on every side, we will not be crushed.

God will take care of us through everything that we face, through persecution, through all of the pain that we face. We are not alone. We will not be destroyed.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9

God Will Protect Me


The Psalms are filled with so many beautiful promises and words of encouragement. Here are a few verses about God's protection.

You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Psalm 32:7

But I call to God,
and the Lord will save me.
Evening and morning and at noon
I utter my complaint and moan,
and he hears my voice.
He redeems my soul in safety
from the battle that I wage,
for many are arrayed against me.
Psalm 55:16-18

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise-
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?

Psalm 56:3-4

Which verses in the Psalms comfort you and remind you of God's protection and love?

Like Little Children


Little children are innocent and sweet. They have so much faith, believing without seeing. They have so much love in them. They are so pure.

Jesus said that the Kingdom of God belongs to "such as these." Children are a great example to us all. We should all try to live like little children.

He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."
Mark 10:14-15
