We started off the year with GUWG’s official 2017 Spiritual Workout to help us all train for the Big Race.

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.

Jesus on Rest

restWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.

Today’s topic? REST. Unplug from the world and go deeeeeeeeeeep into these words from Jesus today:

Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest. (Mark 6:31)

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 11:28-30)

PSALM-O-RAMA: Rest

It’s PSALM-O-RAMA 2015 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.
