Dr. Cecelia Willams Bryant, author, preacher, prophet and prayer warrior lists a litany of gratitudes for us today. Don’t just read through the list on her icon but pray the list and share it with others.

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)

Today, I’m grateful for rest!

What do you do when you rest? You go sit down somewhere and enjoy “the glory of quiet.” You take off your shoes because you’re on  holy ground. You lower your shoulders. Your breathing deepens. Your brows unfold. Your wrinkled forehead and the muscles around your mouth relax.

It’s a physical manifestation of the scripture that admonishes us to lean not unto your own understanding …I’m no longer leaning on how I see things but resting so I can see how the Lord see things; I’m no longer leaning on my human proclivities to satisfy my hungers but I’m resting so I can taste and see that the lord is really good.

I’m resting my attitude, which has been out of whack lately; resting my thoughts – the ones that worry my worries. I’m resting my fears that’s sponsoring my failures; resting my understanding of culture that keeps calling me away from the things of God.

I’m resting from what I want, to know what God wants of me and for me. I’m resting what I want of and from others because sometimes people need a break from me! Today, I’m grateful for rest!

Let us pray out loud:

Today Lord, we thank you for the opportunity to sit in your presence and in the glory of quiet, rest. Freshen our faith, renew our minds and restore the joy of our salvation. In Jesus name, I lean on what you want of me and trust who I am becoming in rest. Amen

    I am grateful that I have the courage and wisdom to rest. I am also grateful that my 85 year old mother acknowledges the need to do church differently: she ask can she give her tithes on Givelify and she now has an email address and learning how to use it.
