Four-Word Thursday — Lee’s Challenge

This week Lee, at Birdwatching Adventures Plus, has offered a challenge to do a post with a specific number of words for specific days, but to use only scripture. So I’m taking part as my schedule allows.

FALL LEAVES & SNOW
Rest for your souls.

From Matthew 11:28-29
“Come unto Me all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your souls.”

Sabbath Rest Invitaional – Week 5

Today is the final “Sabbath Rest Invitational” Post. I hope these March offerings have helped you relax and let the stress go for a while. If you have a picture or text of any kind that represents rest to you, please share it on this post. Just post it on your own blog and come over here to paste the link in the “Comments” window.

Here’s my restful gift for this week:

BLUE BIRD - JOHN, KAREN HOLLINGSWORTH - CROPPED # 2BE STILL AND KNOW

“Be Still and know that I am God.”  (Psalm 46:10)

I’ve come to the end of myself, Lord.
I’ve come to the end of my road.
To the place that my strength’s too depleted
To wield the sword of Your Word.

I’ve come to the end of my struggle,
And there’s no earthly place I can turn.
But Your strength’s made perfect in weakness;
That’s one lesson, Lord, I have learned.

So reach down for me in Your grace, Lord,
And Your mercy that’s new every day.
Come in Your omniscient power, Lord.
You fight the battle; I’ll praise.

Because
When there’s nothing left of me, I find it’s true
That all I ever really need is You.

Sabbath Rest Invitational — Week 2

Jesus tells us in Matthew 11: 28  “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  And in Hebrews 4:9, the Lord says, “There remaineth, therefore, a Sabbath rest unto the people of God.” The only true rest comes from the Creator of all things, through His Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Sometimes, we get so busy that we forget to spend time with Him in order to absorb His rest. Hopefully, this series of Sunday posts will help us focus on enjoying that rest He so lovingly wants us to have.

I don’t call “Sabbath Rest” a challenge — rather an INVITATION. If you have a photo, a graphic, a favorite scripture passage, or a short quote that represents REST to you, please share it via this “Sabbath Rest” series.

Here’s How:  Simply post your photo or text on your own site; then hop over here to my “Sabbath Rest” post each week and paste the link to yours in the “Comments” box. That’s it. We’ll all get a chance to visit other sites and benefit from the “Rest” offered on each one.

My submission for week 2 is a little chorus the Lord gave me while in His presence one morning.

SUNSET - KEVIN BELL  BLUE- FOR BLOG

Color edited for this post.

I rest my soul
In the bosom of the Father.
I rest my soul
Deep within my God.
I rest my soul
In the Maker of creation,
And safe in Him,
I rest.

Sabbath Rest — An Invitational Series — Share Your Rest

Jesus tells us in Matthew 11: 28  “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  And in Hebrews 4:9, the Lord says, “There remaineth, therefore, a Sabbath rest unto the people of God.” The only true rest comes from the Creator of all things, through His Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Sometimes, we get so busy that we forget to spend time with Him in order to absorb His rest. I’d like to do a series of posts that will help us focus on enjoying that rest He so lovingly wants us to have.

So this post is the first in a series of posts for Sundays. I don’t call it a challenge — rather an INVITATION. If you have a photo, a graphic, a favorite scripture passage, or a short quote that represents REST to you, please share it via this “Sabbath Rest” series.

Here’s How:  Simply post your photo or scripture on your own site; then hop over here to my “Sabbath Rest” post each week and paste the link to yours in the “Comments” box. That’s it. We’ll all get a chance to visit other sites and benefit from the “Rest” offered on each one.

Here’s mine for this week:
