If your calendar is full and you feel tense, rushed and even panicked at times – this study is for you. We must stop overbooking ourselves and slow down to meditate on God’s Word and let the Psalms comfort us, the Proverbs counsel us, the Gospels draw us nearer to Jesus, and Revelation fill our hearts with hope.
God wants you to talk with Him about your struggles, pains, and frustrations, and give Him all your cares in exchange for His peace.
Because we do not rest, we miss hearing God’s voice. Psalm 23 comes to mind.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”
Are you experiencing the green pastures, the quiet waters, and the restoration of your soul that Psalm 23 speaks of, from resting with your Shepherd?
Remember how the crowds pressed in on Jesus everywhere He went? Everywhere He turned, there was a need unmet, and though there was so much to do . . . He withdrew to rest.
Luke 5:16 says, “But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.”
If Jesus needed alone time with God, then certainly we do. Just think of the wisdom He wants to impart to you, the strength and the peace you may be missing out on.
Give yourself permission not to have your to-do list all checked off in order for you to rest and get alone with God.
Bible Study Details:
- Monday through Friday, inside the Rest and Release journal, Courtney provides a verse of the day, a short devotional, a reflection question and space to use the SOAK method, to soak in the passage of scripture for the day.
- Each Monday, at Women Living Well, Courtney will provide free resources to go with your study for the week, along with a practical challenge of something she does in her home that helps her rest and live blessed. She hopes you will take the challenges. They do make a difference!
- Each Wednesday, Courtney will post a devotional at Women Living Well that corresponds with your scripture reading for the day, along with a discussion question for you to discuss in the comment section.
- Each Friday, at Women Living Well, you will find 4 videos (one per week) that correspond with the scripture you are studying each week. There is space inside your Rest and Release journal to take notes on each video.
This study begins on October 1st. It’s a 4-Week Bible Study, and will be hosted over at Women Living Well.
