The ending of summer, the beginning of another year of homeschooling, and the changing of seasons. Here we are... September.
Over the summer, God spoke to me about peace and rest. I wrote these words in my journal in July, "You will find the peace you seek when you rest in Him." Peace when all is well is not difficult to find. Finding peace when your circumstances are ugly, peace when you face tragedy, peace when you are sick, peace when you are lonely, hurting, sad; that's a different story.
And actually, it really is a different story. Not the story the world paints, but the story of God. The story of crucifixion, resurrection, ascension. The story of redemption.
God gave me the word 'shalom' to carry in my heart and to be the theme for our family this school year. May we embrace it fully.
Resting in Him.
