Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.”

Psalm 116:7 NIV

Don’t let a bad attitude rob you of a good opportunity to be used by God today.

The very best way to change your attitude is by reminding yourself who God is and who you are in Christ.

When the world crowds in on you and makes you feel claustrophobic with all the “things needed ASAP”, it is good to take a moment to chill out and remember that God is good and has been good to you.

It resets your perspective and returns your internal state from “fret” to “rest”.

Unwind your worry.

Reset your soul.

God has called you to be a change maker where you are.

He will give you everything you need to do it including reminding you to get out of the way.

Let go of all the things you can’t control today and reset the one thing you can- your attitude.

What does re-setting your soul to rest in Jesus look like for you today?

    I absolutely love the title of this post. Reset Your Rest—so brilliant. And a reminder I know I need to hear often.

    I was talking to a friend recently who talked about all the demands of life. She’s in a really difficult season with a new born, a husband working crazy hours, and a lot of other stresses. She feels overwhelmed and like she’s never giving enough. I reminded her that God is so good and he never asks us to walk through something he hasn’t already walked through himself. So being overwhelmed by people constantly wanting his attention and demanding more of him? Yup. He’s been there and completely empathizes with us in those tough patches. So lean into him and use him for your rest!

    Thank you for sharing this, it is beautifully written!

I love to hear from you and appreciate every comment!
