Daily Devotion – Finding Rest from the Cares of This World

2020 has been a tough year, but it’s taught me one thing. This journey I’m on isn’t about me. It’s not about life or death, famine, or war. It’s not about the trials I face or the triumphant days. It’s about leaning on God regardless of what comes my way. It’s about trusting in something bigger than me.

His compassionate grace gives me hope. His sovereign power sustains me when I can’t stand on my own.

As long as we’re in this world, we’ll have trouble, but it could never separate us from the love of our God.  We’re surrounded by sickness and pain, poverty and loss, hunger and sadness, and sorrow… Yet hope remains for those who believe–for if our treasure is stored up in heaven, nothing can take it away. 

With faith in the foreseeing care and compassion of God, we find rest from the cares of this world.

Tilling the Soil

Meditate on the words found in John 14:1-3. Let that promise be your focus in difficult times.

Planting Hope

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39, KJV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.

She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.

It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical FitnessReshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.

Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at
