“In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it”. Isaiah 30:15
As we withdraw from the confusion of daily life over Christmas time and spend more time in nature, we once again connect with God. Slow down and enjoy the things that we let slip in the everyday rush of the rest of the year: long conversations with family members; the beauty of creation; the delight in a child’s eyes; playing with pets; and most of all, digging deep into the Word of God.
Look up into the branches of tall trees, and remember that they grow slowly. Allow God to bring His refreshing strength into your life again, and accept His gifts of peace and joy.
“Creator God, thank You for restoring Your peace and joy to me in times of quietness and rest”. Amen.
