Obey God And Rest

by Hazel Straub

Change and transition surrounds you and what was routine in the past no longer fits or works. It is uncomfortable. God is telling you to leave behind old habits and sins. A higher commitment to follow what he is asking without excuses is required.

Do not fret and stew, God will come through for you. Rest and follow his bidding.

“But forget all that—
    it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
    See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
    I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:18-19 NLT)

  7. Work now is minimal thanks to the government shutdown of musician activity in health care n I was a pianist in Assisted Living and nursing home. I ask God frequently what am I to do today to serve You. He says just love Me. There is much hate in the earth. There are many ways to show that.

  8. That Isaiah verse is one of my favorites — a reminder to watch for what God is doing to create a spring of living water in the dry desert of life.
