When you feel too tired to pray, Jesus whispers – Lean in. Just let me love you. You’re worth it. Choose rest. In Deuteronomy 33:12, we find a beautiful blessing –
“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.” Deut 33:12
Henri Nouwen once said that, “Joy is the experience of knowing that you are unconditionally loved. It’s openness. To pray is to listen to the One who calls you “my beloved.”
Today, I invite you listen to an intimate Whispers of Rest Prayer Podcast with beautiful music and scripture reflection.

We all want to feel loved. On our earthly journey there may be times when we have not felt loved. I know I have had those moments. To know that God the Father and his son Jesus LOVE ME AND CALL ME BELOVED DAUGHTER, is joyful and peaceful to me. It does give me rest. I know that one of my favorite praise songs I am currently singing in my studio is called, Not For A Moment. The lyrics remind me HE is by my side every moment and reaching for me through all the storms of life as He does with everyone of us. He is always there and never will forsake us. This journey with Whispers of Rest led by Bonnie is a BLESSING to me and I am sure everyone.Marsha.

I have struggled with self image issues since I was a teen. You would think at age 53 I would have it figured out, but no, I am inundated the quiet whispers of the enemy…you are fat, out of shape, if you only looked more toned you’d feel better…i have kept these to myself because when I try to ask for help people just insinuate it’s silly, you look good or something that minimizes the depth of my hurt and struggle. These struggles have now turned into physical pain…knees, hips, back. I just want feel healthy, strong and content in the Lord. I am tired. I need energy especially in my career as an elementary school principal.
