Finding Rest

How amazing is Meg’s song?  If you missed it, click here to listen.  Meg, I know that took a lot for you to share, so thanks for giving us a glimpse of your heart and sharing your musical talents with us.

This week, I’m deeply desiring is to rest and nourish my heart, but I’m also continually battling my heart’s tendency to wander.  One thing I have begun doing is journaling, mainly because it’s therapeutic, but also because it was an excuse to go shopping.  Check out the newest addition to my journal family.  Don’t you love Amazon?

I’ve also found refreshment through music.  I visited my friend Caroline McCain’s blog this week and learned of the fabulous musical talents of Joanna Reyburn May, who leads worship at the International House of Prayer.  She has incredible musical sets that are perfect for resting, soaking, and nourishing our hearts.  Here’s a sample of some of her music called “I still want you” written by Jacob Hanly.  It’s simple, relaxing, and full of an honest yearning for more of God. 

And because it makes my heart sing, here’s Meg’s song, “Dwelling,” again too!

(Can you tell I’m excited I finally learned how to upload audio to the blog??)

Also, for another encouraging post about resting visit (in)courage.

And lastly, I know no one likes to be “Tardy for the Party” as Real Housewife of Atlanta Kim so eloquently points out, but one of my friends and heroes Trish Ryan started a 40 Days of Faith party on one of her blogs.  I don’t have words to tell you how much I love Trish, her insights, and her writing, so you’ll have to check it out on your own.  AND she has a new book coming out this month! 

Here’s to resting!

“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.  He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
Psalm 62:1-2
