"Come to Me and Rest!
I am all about you, to bless and restore.
Breathe Me with each breath.
The way just ahead of you is very steep.
Slow down and cling tightly to My hand.
I am teaching you a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship"
"Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For My yoke is easy and my burden is light"
I am trying to get up earlier than usual in order to have time to myself. I got up at 6:00 instead of 6:30/6:45.
I had a great morning devotion and read this. What a blessing. We have both learned so much in the past year. Looking back 2009 was probably one of the hardest years emotionally, financially and spiritually but I must admit I have learned the most, clung to Him the most and stayed closer to Him than ever. So when she says "I am teaching you a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship" I get it. I have definitely learned so much from the hardship we have had. I count it all blessings and I would not trade it for anything. Have blessed Saturday.
By the way the kids just woke up, so much for time by myself, I guess I need to get up at 5:00 in order to have the time I want.
