As I looked at this picture, I couldn't help but think about my Heavenly Father, and how He longs for me to just rest in His arms. While I am busy, running around scurrying from one thing to another, He waits.
But when I finally stop long enough to enjoy spending time with Him, He quietly whispers in my ear, 'Be still and know that I am God'(Psalm 46:10)
As I continue in this time of enforced rest, otherwise known as a Medical Leave from work, I am learning to be still, to rest, to stop and remember:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High,
Will abide(or rest) in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, 'My refuge and my fortress.
My God in whom I trust! (Psalm 91:1,2)
I don't know what the future holds, but I do know who holds the future....and I am learning to be content to rest and be still in the arms of the Father.
