Rest

Psalm 38:8

Psalm 38:8

I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.

After Thought

David was at a very low point in his life and he knew where to go. Absent of strength and overwhelmed by the circumstances of life he called out to God to take charge. He didn't let his feelings rule the day, but poured them out to the Lord and trusted in Him.

Hebrews 4:10

Hebrews 4:10

For all who have entered into God's rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world.

After Thought

This young girl had entered her cow in a competition at a state fair. This cow meant more to her than just some live-stock, and she was more than just the keeper.

Our relationship with God is to have the same kind of trust and peace.
