Rest with Him Words of my Heart by a Texas Artist Laurie Pace


Every day we confront the need to make decisions.  Simple decisions as well as life changing ones. 

Every morning take the time before you rise from bed to give this day to the Lord and for all the worries that are piling in your mind, the schedules and the wants... put those at the foot of the cross. 

As an artist I have begun to do visuals with my prayers of what the foot of the cross has beneath it. Broken cups, broken hearts, torn clothing, baby dolls missing an arm, teddy bears without one eye. Each symbolizing something that has caused a fear or worry to manifest itself within.  Put those things at the foot of that cross. 

Affirm your faith in God. Release everything else. The joy is in the release of getting yourself and your controlling thoughts out of the way. God cannot guide you if He is constantly tripping over your baggage. 

We are so blessed. Lean back into Him this day and trust He will take care of you.

Words of my Heart, Laurie
