Rest TRUE Rest!

Many people get to go to exotic places, different states, or cities for *vacations* from their jobs and their everyday life’s.There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that and it is a blessing to many ❤ That being said, not many single or married moms and dads and even grandparents have that “luxury”. Many of them  have to work as many hours as they can to just make “ends meet”. I have been there~as so many of you have~The Lord carried me through and what a blessing to know that when we can’t leave any where  for a break~what ever the cause may be~ we can “rest” ! We have our Comforter~our TRUE Life Preserver~our TRUE Refresher! We can go to The Good Lord where ever we are and be instantly refreshed and comforted at the same time! Instant MINI “vacation”!  So when we are bound to everyday life and can’t get away we CAN “escape” and  “rest” in God through Jesus knowing HE has made a way for us by His finished work and we may enjoy “Rest which shall satisfy..” FOREVER!

HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

Come! I Will Give You Rest
Matthew 11:28, 29

Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from your every care;
Come as you are, oppressed
With weakness and despair.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from the ceaseless strife;
Rest from the fear of death,
Rest from the din of life.
Come! I will rest impart,
Rest after toil and pain,
Rest to each trembling heart
Burdened with sin and shame.
Come ! ye with guilt oppressed,
Great though your burden be;
Come ! I will give you rest,
Rest built on pardon free.
Come! whosoever will,
No one will I deny;
Come! I will give to all
Rest which shall satisfy.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest in contentment sweet;
Come! as a welcome guest,
Rest at your Saviour’s feet.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest from the weight of woe,
Rest from the weary quest
For happiness below.
Come! I will give you rest,
Where earthly conflicts cease;
Rest on a Saviour’s breast,
Rest in the paths of peace.
Come! I will give you rest,
Rest in a Father’s love,
Rest in the mansions blest,
Rest in your home above.
