Well...sitting with Shawn didn't really help

Okay, well currently I am supposed to be writing a blurb for adoption and a blurb for parenting for my new website at work.....instead, I am sitting here, spending time with my Jesus....and with you.

Yesterday, I was overwhelmed and frustrated, and impatient. I spent some time at work, sitting....resting, listening to Shawn....and although it made me stop for a moment....it didn't really ease the stress I was holding on to.

So.....yesterday evening, after our walk......Jesus and I hung out together. We lay in my bed, and talked, and listened to His music....and rested. I was quiet before Him....and He in turn, held me a little.

He said this to me:
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Calm and comfort and peace. Rest. I don't have to be troubled, I don't have to be afraid.

And so, my piece of advice for you......instead of resting with Shawn, rest with Jesus.....it works much better.
