Rest

It's summer time!

2017 has been packed full of things. Some good. Some bad. And I'm in need of rest.

Leave it to author Bonnie Gray to have, direct from Jesus, a great way to do just that. A way to "revitalize" my soul. That's how she puts it in her new book Whispers of Rest.


This book comes at just the right time for me. The first day/chapter asks readers some great questions: How is Jesus unexpectedly prompting your heart to say YES...and leave something old and familiar? What is holding you back? What do you need to let go of in order to follow Jesus ahead - people, places, routines, possessions, expectations, roles, or responsibilities?

Now, how do I answer these questions? It's simple, really. I too often let my job as a teacher and coach consume me. I find myself utterly exhausted to the point that my children are prompted to pray for their mother to have more energy during bedtime prayers.

That's sad, ya'll.

So I am looking forward to 40 days of "God's love to revitalize my soul." After day one, I'm already enjoying hearing my Lord through Bonnie Gray's words. She presents God's word in a simple, soul changing way. This is not surprising. After reading her books, you feel better. You feel closer to the Lord.

Let me challenge you! Get a copy of Bonnie's latest book and explore the Word of our Lord with her. You won't regret it!

Today's forget-me-not:
"I run in the path of your commands for you have set my heart free." Psalm 119:32
