This workshop was Rest and Rhythms of Life by Deidra Riggs
She said that she uses the app Pray as you go daily. When she can't get her time with the bible, she will use this and at least get some time in...
REST and SLEEP are NOT the same thing.
Richard Foster wrote a book called "Prayer." She said it was a great book!
God is eternal.
We live in time, not Him!
Your season of life will change. PRAY.
A new season is coming... Hang in there!
The story of Noah: Means rest.
Rest is a solid place for your feet to land. It is not always about sleep.
My presence will go with you and I will give you rest!
Type of rest here is permission to release.
His presence is going to be with you.
We are on a journey with God. Every day God needs to get into your heart and find rest there!
EXPECTATIONS = FAILURE (You are NOT a failure)
- This is something I struggle with. I expect things to go a certain way and if they don't I am upset or disappointed. I am working to quit having such high expectations so I will not feel this way. I am also working to live life to the fullest and trying to give the worries/stresses to God.
We need to find a solid place to rest. He will help us find peace. Then we can focus on our relationship with God.
God wants us to cling to Him. We can't do that if we don't give him the time. Find the time and the space to find peace and to have your time with God.
Let all the stresses go and find rest in Him.
Your relationship with God is personal. You do it whenever you can and you do it together. Your rest will change from day to day. Sometimes all you have to do is just go out for a walk...
Another good book to read is "Spiritual Pathways."
Give yourself permission to rest! God gives you the permission, so why can't you give yourself that?
