The Invitation... God is Calling You to Rest


__________________________________________________________

I have a song...

Many, in fact

but this particular song has been

following me
or leading me

I'm not sure which

But one day as I opened my mouth to sing to the children
this quiet invitation began to spill out...

"Come on in, take a seat
God is calling you to rest, right now...
God is calling, God is calling you to rest right now"

an immediate calm filled the room
the children fell asleep
and I sat singing another 20 minutes or so

That day we all found rest... 


And since that day

the song has been

following me
or leading me

(I'm not sure which)

but it always shows up just when I need rest most

anxiety
uncertainty
fear
pain

"God is calling you to rest right now"

anxiousness
restlessness
anguish
doubt

"God is calling you to rest right now"

the sweet invitation holds my heart
and gently leads me to that place

where I find Him

each time
every time

and I can't really explain the rest that I've found
 
But I extend the invitation so that you can experience it for yourself so...

"Come on in, take a seat"

Allow the peace of God to calm your

mind
spirit
soul

and accept
the invitation

to

rest

Matthew 11:28
