And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse…and his rest shall be glorious. Isaiah 11:10
Glorious rest sounds wonderful. So I go forward, unafraid. I rest in God.
I wrote this blog as I prepared to attend the NCWA Annual Writer's Renewal Conference in Bothell. This conference is always a wonderful time with fellow writers and agents and editors.
I enjoy meeting new people and sharing what God has called us to write.
I enter into a competitive arena of writer's who desire to reach lives with our written words.
It's a little intimidating.
But God works better when I get my freaked out self out of the way. I just need to put my right foot in front of my left – repeat – and move forward praying between each step.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength (Philippians 4:13)
"The Rest of God is in a realm beyond all man's activities". (p139 God Calling)
It is there that I find my joy.
So I'm going to go rest now.
God Bless Your Heart with Rest
The idea for this blog post came from the May 8 entry in the God Calling book edited by AJ Russell.
