“If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.”
“Come to me, all who are weary and burdered, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28
In a world running faster than ever before, it is important to take the time to rest. This time away from the stress of the world is necessary to your health and gives your mind and body a break from running and deadlines. Full rest and peace can only come from God, but we must be willing to receive it. By taking the time to listen for God’s voice, we are opening ourselves up to His rest and peace. My challenge for you is this: make time to rest in Christ today.

Today’s Theme: Trust
“Worrying doesn’t change anything but trusting in God changes everything.” – Unknown
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” – Psalm 56:3
Trust is one of the most important things in a relationship. It’s the same for our relationship with God. We have to learn to trust Him and His plans for our lives. That’s my challenge for you this week. :)

Today’s Theme: Future
“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.” – Unknown –
“Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21
As graduation crawls closer, people are always asking me what my plans are for the future. And the truth is, I don’t know and I don’t want to think about it. The future is a very scary thing for me, filled with uncertainty and unknowns. But as a Christian, I have to remind myself that I’m not in control; God is. So really, the future shouldn’t be that scary because God is already there. And that is a very calming thought.

Today’s Theme: Peace
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where this is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” – Unknown
“God is not a God of disorder but of peace” – 1 Corinthians 14:33a
This week, I saw God give me peace. Normally when I have big tests or events, I get really nervous and anxious. On Saturday, I went to take my SAT. Before the test began, I asked God to give me “peace that surpasses all understanding”. I didn’t realize until afterward that I was completely calm the entire time I was taking the test. My peace comes from God and because of that, I will praise HIM.
Hey, everyone! How has your 2017 been so far? This year, I wanted to start something new on my blog: Motivation Mondays. Twice a month (on a Monday) I will post a motivational post to cheer you on and to encourage you to keep going. It will include a quote, a Bible verse, and sometimes a little blurb from me on the topic. I’m sure you all will enjoy it!
*Note: Every picture in every Motivation Monday post is from Pinterest. The pictures are not mine.*
