A few weeks ago, I shared how exhausted I’d been, and how I realized that all the running and doing affected my health, and left me running on fumes. The thing is, that when we’re weary we get distracted. When we’re distracted we let our guard down. When we let our guard down, the enemy attacks. This is when we believe the lie that we are not running and doing enough. We even believe the lie, that we are not enough.
I’m here to remind you (and me) that Jesus wants to take your burden, in exchange for His peace. Here are 12 verses to remind us that there is rest in Him.
