A new year, a new decade is here. It is a time of reflecting, celebrating, and being thankful for blessings, answers to prayers, and wisdom gained over the past year.
Yet you wonder what to do with the "rest of it." The sorrow from grief, the hurt when others didn't understand you, the expectations that were not met, and even your own shortcomings.
Beloved, step into My rest and let the rest go.
If you don't let the rest go, you won't have room for My new. The rest will pull you back, weigh you down, and expend energy that you need for what is ahead.
Forgive those who need to be forgiven, lay down your disappointments, and ask Me to be for you who others are not. When you give it to Me, I provide you with more of Me and always something better.
Step into My rest and let the rest go.
All in for you,
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Forgetting what is behind and reaching forward to what is ahead, I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14
Jesus, is there anyone I need to forgive from my heart?
Are there any disappointments I need to lay down at your feet?
Who do you need to be for me that others are not?
