Finding Rest in Unrest

“Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.” Psalm 62:5 Even in the carefreeness of summer, there can still be an unfreeing feeling of unrest and at times, hopelessness as we continue through the different seasons of our days.  There are still struggles, there are still challenges we battle as moms, as women. Some of you battle with a habit that seems to plague you over and over again and you are tired of it–wanting it to change or to just stop. Perhaps it’s the battle of not yelling, or the battle of waiting something through until it ends.  You may be experiencing unrest in feeling just plain old worn out. Today, if any of this describes where you are at, perhaps you can find rest not in your circumstances changing the way you need them to, but in God–for in Him, we can find true restoration, correction and hope for that something new needed in our circumstances. See what He has for you today as you put your trust in Him for the hope and newness you are needing in your life. He will meet you where you are at and surprise you in new and in unexpected ways!

  1. Yes Linda,
    It’s true in life the struggles never go away – sometimes it’s like a bad soap opera! But thank God, He never leaves us or forsakes us and He gives us the strength and direction to deal with whatever comes our way because He equips us and prepares us to be effective and productive in this life. We just need to turn to Him, trust in Him, and walk with Him in obedience through these difficulties and He will get us through it.
