Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest . . . Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. (Matt. 11:28–29 The Message)
RESTNotes serve as a Fifteen-Day Devotional Guide to my new book, Words That Change Everything: Speaking Truth to Your Soul.
Words That Change Everything focuses on specific prayer strategies that have helped me deal with overwhelming emotions and negative self-talk.
RESTNotes offers a few additional thoughts about how God’s Word directed my journey as he taught me to apply the prayer strategies of REST (remember, exalt, surrender, and trust) to my circumstances.
I pray these RESTNotes inspire you to consider the power of God’s Word for your life and motivate you to identify the stories that matter most to you.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. (Heb. 4:12 NLT)
How do you find REST for your soul?
