Jesus Freak

IMG_2622My life has changed. As I have previously mentioned, I am now on long-term disability with chronic neck and back pain. To have my life so drastically change, from hiking up mountains to sitting in the four walls of my house almost 24/7, I can only give my faith completely to God.

Yes, I am a Jesus freak.

My life is devoted to Jesus Christ, and I am not afraid to say so. I know that He has a plan for me, and I can’t wait to see what comes in the future! To God be the glory!

Wondering what God wanted me to do, now that I am home all the time and have plenty of time to serve Him, I pray daily and read the bible. I almost felt stressed and restless not knowing what I should be doing, and feeling lost that I might be failing to follow God’s lead.

I finally got an answer that I did not expect.

“Rest.”

That’s all He said. I was confused and startled at the answer, but a bit relieved that I then realized that I wasn’t supposed to be doing anything in particular. Just rest.

Sometimes when we are feeling lost, hurt, confused or even angry, what we should do next before we do anything rash or off our right path is just rest. Rest our mind, rest our body, rest our soul, be still, and know He is God.

Just rest.
