Quiet Place...

"He leadeth me beside the still waters, He restoreth my soul...."
Have you ever needed to be still?
To just stop and listen to God?
Or maybe talk to God about things that you do not understand?

I know that I do....
These past couple of months there have been some things that I am struggling to understand. Things that I thought or hoped that I would never have to deal with and it is hard. But I have found that I can come to God and rest in Him and He is there to lift, encourage, strengthen and give hope in these situations. I am so thankful that my God cares about me. It is comforting!


I went to this park the other day. I always knew that it was there but I never drove in.
Well last week I went over to it on my lunch break. It was a beautiful day! I sat on one of the picnic tables next to the water.
I sat for a little while and then I just started thanking God for all of my blessings and praying.

Praying for all of the many burdens that I had on my heart and God just came and felt so close to me. He met my soul in such a special way that day! It was wonderful!
I need to find that extra time to spend with my Best Friend!
It is so important and essential in our Christian walk to spend time with God...
Life can get so busy but we need to just "stop" & spend some time with the restorer of our soul!
He is waiting...

That is one of my favorite Quiet time parks too! I feel ya sista! It is beautiful there! We DO need to stop & 'be quiet, reflect and listen' and it seems He speaks more to us when we do finally do that! There are days my heart just longs for Him so I find His comfort in resting at one of the many Lebanon parks! Keep it up!
