Resting satisfied

Protected Wetlands

It’s been hot here in Northern CA. You can see from this photo I took last Saturday that only the plants near the water are really green. #staynearthesource

The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom, yet how much time do I spend, showing Him reverence? #natureisHisanctuary

If I truly believed that harm would not visit me but rather I would rest satisfied, surely I would cultivate this time spent with Him.

In my second coping skills class, I learned about “unhealthy” ways to deal with stress, that actually bring harm to the individual. We talked about everything from ruminating to hostility. By acknowledging the way I deal with stress, I can understand myself better. #acknowledgetheHolyOnetoUnderstandbetter

What I desire is steadfast love, which is not always given in family relationships. Truth is important (especially being honest with myself). What do I truly need? Finding those needs met in the LORD, I can rest in faith.

It takes faith to let go of my desires and take hold of God’s word. – Teresa #faithfultoHim

Proverbs 19:22-23English Standard Version

22 What is desired in a man is steadfast love,
and a poor man is better than a liar.
23 The fear of the Lord leads to life,
and whoever has it rests satisfied;
he will not be visited by harm.

Proverbs 9:10 NET
The beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord,
and acknowledging the Holy One is understanding.

  1. It’s been raining well here in Minnesota (raining now), We have been praying for rain out there as we keep in touch with a sister. Your insight into resting in the Lord for our satisfaction is so, so true.
