This week Kelly Beaumont shares some thoughts to encourage and empower us to get through the next seven days as she chooses a few songs to help us in our times of worship

This week Jesus gave me one simple instruction.…’Come close to me & rest in my presence’.

Lately I’ve found myself in the busyness of working from home, as well as home schooling where I’ve often felt worn out & overwhelmed. Yet God in His grace & love for me gently reminded me to come aside & rest for a while with Him.

The situations around me haven’t changed but my heart & mind have become still & I’ve found rest & strength to get through the day.

But those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up on wings like eagles, they shall run & not grow weary, they shall walk & not faint.

Isaiah 40 v 31

If like me you find that the busyness of life becomes overwhelming, Jesus says to come aside & rest for a while. Take opportunity no matter how small to sit in His presence, take a deep breath & allow Him to minister to you. Just a few moments in His presence is priceless & will change your day. He will give you peace & strength that no one else can give. Let Him speak to your heart & then walk beside you throughout your day.

Why not take just a few moments now to sit quietly and listen to this track before diving in to the worship playlist I’ve prepared for you today.

Have a blessed week
