Must We Always Move In Hope?

Resting In Hope

Resting In Hope

 

Must we always be moving towards our Hopes for them to be fulfilled? I think not. There are times in our journey towards whatever it we may be Hoping for that we just need to sit and rest.

Make sure you pick a good resting point, imagine one like sitting under the above tree. A place that will give you calm, relaxing, even rejuvenating feelings, surrounded by beauty. A place of rest like this allows us to renew our strength for the journey that is often uphill and at times treacherous.

If you are hoping for something and you feel out of energy, take a moment to rest. Then, before you know it, Hope will lift you off your feet as you soar towards the fulfillment of it!

    This reminds me of Jaci Valasquez’ song “I Wanna Rest In You”, and a recent sermon about ‘doing the will of God by his spirit working within you’ (Phil.2:13) instead of ‘earning your place in heaven through your own works.’ Plus a few lines from a fb post my friend shared with me “Jesus didn’t die so we could amass a spiritual resumé of good works but so that we could rest in his righteousness as we obey out of love and humility.” http://madeformore.co/4-things-jesus-didnt-die-for/#8JV7zXZdFcxwWvQF.99

    It seems like I am hearing that things will work out, even if I sleep in today. (maybe, I have a lot of responsibilities) — I guess I need a few more touchpoints on this to figure out how to apply it.

    We live in a time where “faster” is more valued… “take a moment to rest.” Great advice!
