Here is an interesting fact about this post- I started writing it on the 23rd of May, 2019. In my blogging journey, I have found it very helpful to quickly write whatever is laid on my heart so that I can reflect on it and later share with you, my friends. It may take months before I get to share a spiritual motherhood experience but it is always worth the wait.
Isn’t it weird that babies sometimes stay asleep while there is so much noise around but wake up when you try to sneak out of the room quietly?? In April 2019, I toured a coca-cola museum with the little one. A 4-D theater experience was part of the admission package. The little one slept through the 4-D theater experience. Chairs were moving and it was extremely loud, but he slept through it all. He woke up after we left the theater. It was unbelievable.
The little one reminded me of Jesus sleeping in the middle of a violent storm (Matthew 8:24). When life seems chaotic, we can still experience internal peace because the one who is peace lives in us. I can hear Him say, be still. Rest in me. I am your peace.
Hebrews 4:10-11 (NIV)
For anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
Personally, rest is giving thanks to God for answered prayers while waiting for a miracle this season. Not overthinking.
What does Hebrews 4:10-11 mean to you this season?
