A Bend In the Road – REST!

At some point along our journey in life, often many times, we might face a choice:

  • Do we keep on trying to rely on our own strength and try harder and harder?
  • Or do we seek something greater than us to lift us up and carry us along when we've just about given out?

Our culture encourages us to be totally self-sufficient, strong, have it all together….but what if we aren't and don't?!? It's OK, and you don't have to pretend anymore. I hope this is refreshing and inspiring hear, and that you will believe it: we were not created to live that way. There is rest.

One of my favorite quotes is from a dear friend who is older and wiser than me and has walked along life's road through many trials: "Life is hard, but it's good." Thank you Marge! When she shared that with me, I was so pooped out along a low road on a slow haul, but she was right. 

There is hope. There is a reason life can be hard and good at the same time. You never have to go it alone.
