Relax, Relate, Release!

Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. "

Well, I have reached the last letter of POWER and now all I can think about is rest. I broke down all the letters to show how much POWER you have inside. Today I want to talk about rest but not in a way that suggests to sleep or stop doing what you are doing for Jesus. I want to talk about resting for a new you.

As women of God who do so much in our lives with children, husbands, careers, etc., there has to be a time for us. Every day can seem like someone is depending on you to do something for them but at the end of the day you realize that you haven't done anything for yourself. Even God rested after creation on the seventh day so why not you?
We have to learn the principle of rest in our lives to release more important aspects of our journey.

During our resting periods, we must renew our strength to receive honor and glory from God. He recognizes all that we do for Him, but we don't want to become weary during the process. He wants us to remember what He has done for us and how He will repay you for your dilegence. There is no time like the present for restoration. Take this time to revive the vision for your life. Revisit your written dreams and goals and make sure you are on the right track. Take God's direction and restore your joy for the things that God is planning to do. Don't remain where you are and recognize the God is about to revitalize, refocus, and rebuild you. We all will rest well in heaven knowing that we are the righteous ones who God rewards with his riches.

Revelation 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work."
