There Is Joy In The Lord...and rest

So we had a Baptism Service last night at church. It was amazing. It was such a joy to see people surrender their lives to Christ!

So yesterday at church, the Pastor talked about how we need to find rest in God. And the only way we can do that is by believing in him. God allowed Moses and his crew to wander in the wilderness for 40 years and die because of their unbelief. What makes us think that God would not do the same to us?

I know I have been looking for rest for a few weeks now. School has been especially hard this semester. I haven't gotten as much sleep as I like to just because I have had to stay up doing my work. I know it will be worth it in the end, but it's just hard to stay focused. Lucky for me, God's arms are waiting for me to come running back and find comfort and rest in him. JUST BELIEVE!

Back to the Baptism. Last night took me back to when I received Christ and was baptized. Seeing others get "dunked" made me feel that special feeling all over again. What a great reminder it was too. A reminder of what it is like to be truly on fire for the Lord. Because let's be honest, the initial feeling wears off sooner or later. Hopefully seeing the love and joy those being baptized will be a motivator for me to fall back in love with God all over again.

May God bless your lives and that he continues to find joy in all you do. I'm out
