A Word in Due Season
Words of Encouragement, Comfort and Strength
People take pleasure in anything they say, but a word at the right time, how good it is.
(Complete Jewish Bible)
For you are weary from the trials and cares of this world. Do not fret for you must put your care upon me. I am more than able to carry your burden and you.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
But you must learn to rest.
Look at the land in winter. It is a time of rest, a time of rejuvenation for the new fruit in spring, for the new work I am preparing you to enter.
Use this rest season to come closer to me.
Use this time to get into my timing.
Did I not rest on the seventh day from my work? Why do you continue in your busyness, your spinning in circles?
Come aside with me. I will lay you down in cool grass.
Rest is nourishment for your soul.
I will lead you beside still waters.
Rest is peace for your mind.
Come aside and rest.
Spend time with me in that rest and I will show you your next step.
I will show you my love for you.
Take my peace and wear it in your mind, your soul and your body.
So be it.
