Faith Rests

This is a rest not from outer workings!

It wasn’t until I came to Reformation Developmental Center Pastored by Juanita Gibbs that it was finally enlightened to me that I wad doing alot of work inwardly.

My soul (mind, will and emotions) were a busy metropolis inside my being. How do I know this right?

Well, I have been for the most part consumed with doubt, unbelief, fear, worry, anxiety which opened the door for depression, paranoia, panic attackes and much negativity.

My every word spoken was doubt filled, negative ridden laced with depressive unbelief and thus creatung the life I was living. When Pastor opened up this verse below I wanted to know some of that rest that was made available for me.

For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.
Hebrews 4:10 NASB

I have had to learn to become aware when I am worrysome, anxious, fearfilled etc and its hard most times. I can catch myself other times it runs on autopilot so strong that its not until depression hits me that I am like oh I have not been aware of myself.

Other times its so strong I don’t see it, but my Pastor can pick up on it and she lets me know I have been in her spirit to pray for me.

Then she just talks to me to help me flush out whats I have going on inside to release and cast and pray and get deliveres and set free slowly. I am greatful for her leadership in my life its been a life changer for me.

The only way to rest is to pull on the word that says rest, learn to calm my soul and make it submit to the word and allow the spirit to lead, guide and be at work for me in ways that I cannot work.

Its a journey and a process like Pastor tells me. I have to be patient with myself and with God as I cannot get it in one day or two days this will be a journey for the rest of my life. This rest activates faith and allows God to move in ways that my work had hindered. God rests while we work, He works while we rest.

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)
