Carried in Rest

{Bert Hardy, Clyde Rescue}

Convert your thoughts into prayer
As we are involved in unceasing thinking, so we are called to unceasing prayer
The difference is not that prayer is thinking about other things
but that prayer is thinking in a dialogue with God
~Henri Nouwen

I am your Shepherd; you have all that you need
I let you rest in green meadows; I lead you beside peaceful streams
I renew your strength
I guide you along right paths, bringing honor to My Name
Even when you walk through the darkest valley
You will not be afraid, for I am close beside you
My rod and My staff protect and comfort you
I prepare a feast for you in the presence of your enemies
I honor you by anointing your head with oil
Your cup overflows with blessings
Surely My goodness and unfailing love will pursue you all the days of your life
and you will live in the house of the Lord forever

With love and freedom,
Your God
{Psalm 23}

Yes! Thank you, Lord, for your streams of mercy and your promise of rest. Allow our whirling thoughts to always land on You.

I love thinking about how He carries us and allows us to rest. It's a beautiful relationship.

So beautiful. I found myself saying it yesterday as I spent the day with God. It brought me peace in all I am going through

Debi, I find I repeat it often too, almost unconscious of it at times. Such a sweet comfort!
