Love you all, praying for you.
Today helping Dad get established in PRISM. So God can entrust him with more. Daily Calls today were significant. Praise God. Birthday family dinner tonight at O’Charley’s. Thank you Jesus for free meal cupons. He always provides. Lebanon Citizens Meeting tonight – taking Gpa and Gma. I’ve got the black car today.
God was showing me about rest.
My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and salvation, he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. - Psalm 62:1-2
My soul finds rest… Not my spirit only. Even my soul: (mind, will, emotions)
Finds rest: not unsettled (at risk, uncertain), not churning (in turmoil), not striving (pushing), but at rest. My mind finds rest in Him – not unsettled, churning or striving. My will finds rest in Him – not unsettled, churning, or striving. My emotions find rest in Him – not up and down, or out of control, but under His authority.
My soul releases it’s feelings, gives up all tendency to – not be at rest… The salvation of my soul… is not just heaven eternally, that’s for then… not just being spared from physical danger or death… But in my mind, my thoughts are delivered from all uncertainty or turmoil…
My will is delivered from any discontentment, any pressure of under-achievement or under-realization based on a false standard – (which is any standard other than God’s perfect and complete purpose for me in His perfect time…)
My emotions are delivered, snatched up and out - of anything that would make them less than happy, joyfully content, and confidently hopeful.
Because He is my rock, my fortress, my salvation, my deliverer… My mind will not be shaken, my will – will not be shaken, my emotions will not be shaken – they will be permanently settled and at rest in him.
In Him: His presence, His words becoming my words, and obedience. Rest means: no worry, no discontentment, no unsettling, no itch, no wondering if I’m missing out on something.
Complete contentment in this season. Peace in my mind, my desires, my determination (that ticking clock inside me – that says ‘time is running out – you should be doing more.’)
Complete peace, my emotions no longer controlling me, but under the command of my own words as directed by the truth of God’s Word, and power of the Holy Spirit.
Praying for you, that you will choose worship and His Word before other things,
That you would pattern your words, that you will obey the next step He tells you, so you will be in Him, your mind, will, and emotions at rest, fully satisfied in Him.
Love you all,
