Do you promise yourself, one more thing and then you’ll rest. How do we know when we’ve done enough?
Sometimes, we must pause and refresh our bodies and reset our minds. Because my husband, Larry, and I are taking a few days away to do just that, today’s shorter post includes a link to a recent article I think you’ll enjoy.
Something Better than a Retreat
Two friends contacted me recently from the beach. Peace evaded them even in their beautiful surroundings. But both of them had taken a copy of Give Yourself a Break with them. They said renewing their minds soothed their weary emotions better than an ocean breeze and sand between their toes.
We don’t need a vacation to refresh our faith. We can pull aside with God before life pulls us apart. Click To Tweet
Sometimes we just need a reminder—it’s not up to us. Jesus is enough!
Worry, guilt, unreasonable people, and unrealistic expectations can’t steal another day of peace and joy from those who know the simple life of faith. God’s Word is the gentle rain that refreshes deeper than an ocean spray. Are you ready to give yourself a break and enjoy God’s rest? Order your copy here.
Father’s Day Aftermath
Father’s Day can be a painful reminder for too many people of the relationship they didn’t have. But Jesus heals our daddy-wounds. Below is an article I recently shared about this at Lifelettercafe.com.
Years ago …
the staggering impact a father plays in his child’s concept of God was brought home to me in a counseling class. Jim Craddock, a pioneer in studying the tie between our relationship with our earthly fathers and our relationship with our heavenly Father, taught the class.
During the course, each of us took an inventory on how we perceived our heavenly Father in regards to a variety of issues. I zipped through the simple list checking the appropriate columns.
Later in the course, we filled out the same inventory, but this time we answered with respect to our earthly fathers. Again, I whizzed down the columns—until I recognized an emerging pattern. I quickly flipped back in my notebook to search for the first inventory. Stunned, I saw they were almost identical. Click here to continue.
