No Rest for the Weary

He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. – Psalm 23:3

That old saying about “no rest for the weary”… yeah, that’s a myth. The enemy would love for us to buy into that one. 

The truth is more like this:

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28

In 2014, I blogged through brain surgery. I blogged through depression, fear, and pain. I feel like God is asking me in 2015 to lay it down for a bit. To just rest. I’m not thinking I will be gone for long, but I will wait on His timing. I will return when it feels right. I love each of you and hope to be back with you soon. 

Until then…. keep burning….


Heavenly Father, I come to You for rest, and I know you will provide extravagantly, just as you always do. Thank You for being a safe place. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
