Rest with Jesus

GUWG-RestWe continue our journey through every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.

Feeling stresssssssed? Today’s commands are for you:

Soul Rest

GUWG-Rest-2We continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

Here’s today’s selection:

“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

(Matthew 11:27-28)


It’s PSALM-O-RAMA 2019 here on GUWG where all week long we’ll be taking a deep dive into the Book of Psalms.

Today’s featured Psalm is at the top of our visitors’ fave lists year after year after year: Psalm 23.

If you’re at all like me, you don’t spend nearly enough time resting in God. Take a deeeeep breath and spend the next few moments alone with our Heavenly Father. Let each syllable seep into your soul, fill your mind and quiet your heart.


Tired?  Stressed? Overwhelmed?

You don’t have to be. Here’s what Jesus said:

Happy Labor Day!

Take a break from all your labor. Now. Seriously. Please.

Listen to Jesus:

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

Grumbling Antidote #5: Rest

It’s NO GRUMBLING WEEK 2019 here on GUWG.

I don’t know about you, but I find that when I’m tired I’m especially prone to grumpiness.

If I were to type the way I feel at those times, there would be lots of CAPITAL LETTERS and UNDERLINING and BOLD FONT and ITALICS, capped off with an excess of EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!! It’s like EVERY LITTLE THING gets MAGNIFIED and BLOWN WAAAAAAAAY OUT OF PROPORTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ready? Set! Resssssst.

Physical trainers will tell you that any workout plan will be doomed to fail if it doesn’t incorporate today’s piece: REST.

Feeling tired? Stressed? Overwhelmed? You don’t have to.
