Rest in the Middle of Stress

Daily Encouragement –

Do you feel stressed out, scatter-brained, and distracted? Have you gotten any real rest lately? Do you enjoy true peace and rest? 

True peace of mind and rest for your body, soul, and spirit can only be found in Me! Come to Me! Join yourself to Me and My work. Come and be satisfied and at peace even in the midst of the craziness of life as you learn to find your resting place in Me. 

The things of this world will scatter you and lead you astray. They can never bring true peace or rest. The enemy’s plan is to keep you running from thing to thing so you will never get anything of importance done. 

Come to Me! I want to pardon and preserve you completely! I want you to be forgiven, set free, and truly at rest. This can only happen as you come to Me! 

The more of yourself that you give to Me, the more you will truly find your resting place in this life and for all of eternity. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 50:4-6 “With continual weeping they shall come, And seek the Lord their God. They shall ask the way to Zion, With their faces toward it, saying, ‘Come and let us join ourselves to the Lord In a perpetual covenant That will not be forgotten.’ “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; They have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; They have forgotten their resting place.

V. 20 “The iniquity of Israel shall be sought… And the sins of Judah, but they shall not be found; For I will pardon those whom I preserve.”

Self-sufficient?

Daily Encouragement –

What do you need? Are you good? Are you self-sufficient? Where do you place your trust? 

It is not wrong to know you are needy. It is prideful to think you could ever be self-sufficient. This lifestyle leads to death and destruction in so many different ways. You need Me! 

Do you trust in your good works, the work of your own hands? I am the One who works in you the Good. Do you trust in your own reason, resources, and riches? Everything good comes from Me! You must never trust in the things I have given, this is idolatry. Trust in Me!!! 

You can never be self-sufficient. You need Me. You could never take away the stain of sin! You cannot work your way into salvation, healing, or freedom… But why would you want to even try? I have already done the work and paid the price. 

Come to Me and receive all that I have! My storehouse is full of resources waiting for you to ask and trust. You need Me. Come and find your sufficiency in Me. I love you My child and will supply everything you need and more, if you will only come to Me and trust!!!

Jeremiah 48:7 “For because you have trusted in your works and your treasures,You also shall be taken…”

Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Self-Help???

Daily Encouragement – 

What are you saying? What are you doing? Are you speaking out My words or your own? Are you walking in My way or doing your own thing? Whose power are you walking in? 

The rise of self-help books is amusing to Me. In all your human strength, intellect, and self-control; you cannot change your selfish, sinful flesh. You will always think you know better and can do better if you try harder. Do not be foolish! 

Change only comes as you line yourself up with Me and My Word!  Come to Me! I have done the hard work of living a completely selfless, sinless life. Follow Me in My Way and receive all the blessings and life I gained by doing this! Why would you restlessly struggle to survive doing your own thing? 

Come to Me and enjoy the fruit of The Kingdom I have waiting for you!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 44:16-17 “As for the word that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we will not listen to you! 17 But we will certainly do whatever has gone out of our own mouth…”

Prideful Opinion or Humble Trust?

Daily Encouragement –

What’s your opinion? What do you think? How much do you value yourself over Me and My word? 

Everyone has a thought or opinion about serious ( and even non-serious) matters, and most of the time you never have to ask for them. Pride and selfishness will raise their ugly heads and let you know what they think about whatever it is rather quickly. The hard part is learning to listen and trust Me over these two demons! Pride makes you think your way is the best no matter what it may be. Selfishness causes you to desire whatever is best or looks best to you. 

Cut these off at the roots and come to Me with humility. My ways are higher than your ways! Come to Me with trust knowing that I have your eternally best interests concerning all things. 

Come to Me! Trust Me! Follow Me! Love Me in all you do! This journey is worth it, and it will take a lifetime to complete. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 43:2-4 “…all the proud men spoke, saying to Jeremiah, “You speak falsely! The Lord our God has not sent you to say, ‘Do not go to Egypt to dwell there.’ 3 But Baruch the son of Neriah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chaldeans, that they may put us to death or carry us away captive to Babylon.” 4 So Johanan the son of Kareah, all the captains of the forces, and all the people would not obey the voice of the Lord…”

Valued or Not?

Daily Encouragement –


Are you looking for something fresh and new? Do you want a word from Me? Have you completed what I have already given? Have you obeyed? What is the value you have placed on My words? 

I am continually speaking if you will have an open heart to receive and come to Me. What are you doing with what you have heard? The action you take after hearing shows what value you place on My word to you. 

Some are quick to obey while some immediately harden their hearts. Some will try to decide if it is what they want or think is the right thing to do. Often, if the word is distasteful or unpleasant, you go everywhere to figure out something different. Eventually, you will even return to Me to see if I have changed My mind. 

Come close to Me and allow Me to soften your heart to receive and obey all My words. They bring the life, hope, healing, peace, restoration, and love that you need if you will value them and come into line with My divine plan for you. I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 36:3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the adversities which I purpose to bring upon them, that everyone may turn from his evil way, that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin.”

Jeremiah 37:2 But neither he nor his servants nor the people of the land gave heed to the words of the Lord which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah.

V. 17 then Zedekiah the king sent and took him out. The king asked him secretly in his house, and said, “Is there any word from the Lord?”

O’ My Goodness

Daily Encouragement –

Do you have all you need? Are you satisfied? Will you be satisfied for the next 5, 10, or 50 years with what you have now? 

Too often the thing or things you take pleasure in now, for a time, will lose value and be useless to you in a year or less. After that, you will “need” and desire something else, something better.
I urge you to come to Me!!! I am all you need! I have an abundance of peace and truth waiting for you to come and receive it. I have an infinite amount of fresh and new that is waiting for you to come and search out. 
I have so much goodness and prosperity waiting to pour out over you that it will overwhelm those around you. My goodness will cause many to fear and tremble at the abundant outpouring that is released over you as you come and seek Me! 

Do you know that you need Me more than anything or anyone else? Not only do I have all you need, I have all you could desire or ever hope  to seek out for all eternity!!! Come and see!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

Vs. 9 “Then it shall be to Me a name of joy, a praise, and an honor before all nations of the earth, who shall hear all the good that I do to them; they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and all the prosperity that I provide for it.”

Don’t Show Your Backside!!!

Daily Encouragement –

Do you know Me? Have you heard and obeyed My word? Have you turned away to hide your face from Me? Do you know I love you no matter what? 

Anger, fear, shame, selfish lust… these things and so many more cause you to turn from Me. You may be trying to hide the guilt of your sin, but in turning from Me, you turn from The Way, Truth, and Life and begin down another path. 

Your sin does not surprise Me, but it does hurt. I sent Jesus to pay the price for your sin so even in the midst of it, you may come to Me and receive forgiveness. You never have to turn away from Me. I always desire you to come to Me and speak face to face. I want to cleanse your heart and give you one way to follow Me. 

No matter what happens, I desire you to turn to Me, fully and completely!!! I will not turn from you if you do not turn from Me. I will joyfully plant and bring forth fruit in you and bless you with all I have if you walk with Me and never turn away!!! I love you My child!!!

Jeremiah 32:33 “And they have turned to Me the back, and not the face; though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them,yet they have not listened to receive instruction.”

Vs. 38-41“They shall be My people, and I will be their God; 39 then I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me forever, for the good of them and their children after them. 40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from doing them good; but I will put My fear in their hearts so that they will not depart from Me. 41 Yes, I will rejoice over them to do them good, and I will assuredly plant them in this land, with all My heart and with all My soul.’”
