Trust

Don’t be afraid of anything God wants to give you.
Read that statement one more time.
Are you afraid to take time to rest?

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

Peek into your heart and ask yourself why?

  • Are you afraid you might disappoint someone you love or respect?
  • Are you afraid you might tick someone off?
  • Are you afraid you may not live up to your own unrealistic expectations?
  • Are you afraid you won’t measure up? That you aren’t enough?

Speak Truth into the lies that grip you.
Who are you?
You are the child of the Living God!
Your Father created rhythm.
He has GOOD gifts for you when you work and GOOD gifts for you when you rest.
Don’t be afraid of anything God wants to give you.

 

Onward! 

We are a group of passionate people who gather around the 4-word mission statement, “Run Hard. Rest Well.”

  • It’s a journey into the heart of God. It comes our way through an on-going exploration of four biblical rhythms that revive, replenish and restore: Sabbath Keeping, Sleep (and other simple stress-reducers), Stillness—personal retreat, and Solitude—personal retreat.
  • It’s an expedition that challenges us at every turn. It convicts us in deep, tender places. It alters our priorities and plans. It’s not for the faint of heart.
  • It’s adventure at its best – as we learn to run our race in a power not our own.

First time here?

  1. Powerful words, Brenda. It reminded me of Ephesians 1 beginning at verse 3. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing. We are chosen from before the creation of the world. Who can top that for giving an opinion of us that we should listen to?

    3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
    11 In him we were also chosen,[e] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
