Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3 That is what God wants us to do. To rest in him. To let go of our burdens and to let him carry them. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1Peter 5:7 Rest brings on trust in God and knowing that there is nothing to big for Him. Rest equals peace, that peace that passes all understanding. Rest means quieting all our racing thoughts, worries, and concerns, and turning them over to God. We all need rest at times. Many times, we will come to God in prayer and turn everything over to Him, all the heavy loads we've been trying to carry. Which, I might add here.. some of the loads we carry are never meant for us to carry. Speaking to myself here! We get up, brush ourselves off and think... okay God, I gave it all to you. We resume our daily duties, and guess what? Before you know it, we have picked up those loads again. We didn't leave them in God's hands and fully trust in His promises and rest peacefully in knowing that the God... that holds our life and times in His hands, has our best interest at heart! God is our hiding place, our rest and our calm assurance that all is well! God help me, help us, to leave it all on the altar! Kim Zedlitz
