It’s Time to Rest in His Presence

I hope you love the products and resources I recommend here at A Little R & R. Just so you know, it is possible that I get a commission and collect income from the links on this page. Click here for more info.

I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

I don’t know about you, but life has been bringing a lot of pressure lately.

I feel like what I could normally handle just fine is twice as hard and taking twice as long.

Maybe it’s just that I’m getting old.

Whatever the reason, I am finding it more and more necessary to find that place of rest.

And I don’t mean taking a nap.

I mean soul-rest.

The rest Jesus talks about in Matthew 11:28-29, “Come to Me, all you 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.”

This is a kind of rest that doesn’t mean our circumstances necessarily change.

It’s a kind of rest that let’s us stay at rest even when everything around us is at unrest.

That peace that surpasses all understanding.

This time of year is always special, because for the past 13 years I have joined Courtney from Women Living Well for her Making Your Heart a Haven Challenge.

I’ll never forget the first year I did this – it made a huge difference in the atmosphere of my home, and I’ve done it every year since.

This year the topic is “Resting In His Presence” as we look at 20 names of Jesus.

I want to invite you to join us!

A Little More About Good Morning Girls and My Groups

Good Morning Girls is an online Bible study for women. Began by Courtney Joseph in her church, she took the Bible study to the Internet in 2009 and invited ladies all over America to join her in keeping each other accountable to their daily time with the Lord.

Little did she know that this Bible study would extend beyond the borders of America to literally every region of the world!!

In 2014 I joined Courtney, together with my dear friends Misty, Mandy and Bridget, in helping to lead Good Morning Girls. It has been an amazing journey as we’ve watched Good Morning Girls not only grow beyond what we could have dreamed or imagine, but we’ve had the amazing honor to see women’s lives changed by daily digging into God’s Word!

Good Morning Girls is a simple study – we simply read the Bible.

We believe that there is power in the Word of God and the Word of God alone can defeat the enemy. So we read one chapter a day 5 days a week. And we will continue this method until we’ve read through the entire Bible!!

All the materials are free and are available at Women Living Well!

In the summer of 2012 I opened the very first Good Morning Girls group in Croatia.

12 women, all members of my church.

I had no idea where it would lead. But by the following summer it exploded to cover the countries of Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia.
