Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. Hebrews 10:32
I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. Psalm 143:5
So now that we've Looked Back and seen where God's taken us it's time to Chill Out. Chapter 9 Chill Out: Be At Rest, O My Soul. Oh yeah, this is good. As one who loves to burn the candle at both ends I needed to read this chapter. Now it's no secret that I have an illness that can get out of control because I'm not suppose to get overly stressed, over committed, or over tired, but the reality is I do. For me God has provided a trigger in my body to force me into physical rest. My body just plain shuts off sometimes for 2 to 3 days. So I get physical rest.
The Lord replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest" Exodus 33:14
