The Rest of the Story

In my post yesterday, I talked about how I was feeling completely overwhelmed.   Thankfully, I was able to sleep a little better last night and I feel much better today.  God is so good!  We don't have to carry those burdens on our own.  Jesus invites us to, "Come unto me all that are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."  Matthew 11:28-29

" Surrender your whole being to Him to be used for righteous purposes" (Romans 6:13)
 
I'm posting today over at Woman to Woman about worship.  Come read what God considers to be true worship.



Memorizing James
If you are taking part in the challenge to memorize the entire book of James this year, you will need to memorize two verses each week. This week's verses are:
James 1:21-22
21.  Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
22.  Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.
