  3. Rachel says:

    God is so so good. The peace and rest He gives is incomparable to the anxiety and burdens that we feel. My soul NEEDS rest. So I shall go to Him. His yoke is easy and His burden is light, which is the opposite of what I’m feeling right now.

    I grow faint and weary, but He doesn’t. I need Him and I need to trust in Him.

    Idolatry leads to sorrows, but taking refuge in God leads to a multitude of blessings. He is here to listen yesterday, today, and forever, so I should lean into Him and confide in Him. He leads to abundant joy and eternal pleasures, what a blessing.

    I will praise the Lord who counsels me —
    even at night my conscience instructs me. – Psalms 16:7
    Praise be to God for his constant love and protection. For his many blessings and for his unending grace.
