My hubs sent me this picture while I was at work today…
Oh, be still my heart. As much as these two sometimes fight you can just see the trust and love they have for each other.
Many afternoons are filled with arguments and disagreements but love always prevails.
And isn’t it the same between us and God. As I stood looking at this picture I heard God whisper to my heart “This is how much I love you!”.
You see, Evan demonstrates God and Wyatt represents mankind. God is just waiting for us to curl up in his lap and fall into a deep rest. We spend too much of our lives fighting against him when he seeks nothing more than to provide us a place of safety and worship. In Matthew 11 Jesus said “Come to me, all 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.” (v. 28-30).
In spite of all the difficulties life throws your way, do you love and trust God enough to fall asleep in his arms? He desires to carry your burdens for you. He doesn’t want you walking around weighed down and exhausted. He wants you rested and refreshed!
And that little grin Evan is wearing…God wears one for you too! You are his most precious and beloved child. Rest in him today!
