Today I am thankful for rest - but two different kinds of rest. I am thankful for my warm comfy bed that I fall right to sleep in every night (isn't it nice to be able to turn off your brain for just a few hours!?).
I am also thankful for the rest I find in my Savior... that is where my true rest comes. He understands, he cares, he knows every feeling and emotion that pulses through my heart. Jesus is the rest that I find every day to refresh me and make me strong for each struggle that lays ahead.

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;

my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;

he is my fortress,

I will not be shaken.

Psalm 62:5-6

He who dwells in the shelter

of the Most High will rest

in the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 91:1

The LORD protects the simplehearted;

when I was in great need,

he saved me.
Be at rest once more,

O my soul,

for the LORD has been good to you.
For you, O LORD,

have delivered my soul from death,

my eyes from tears,

my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before

the LORD

in the land of the living.

Psalm 116:6-9

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-29
