As we move through the summer, we hope you will make time for rest. Not just the hammock kind of rest, but the REAL rest God provides continually through Jesus. This kind of rest is a rest of the soul. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? This is why YadaFactor continues. YadaFactor encourages three vital behaviors – read, write, and share – to hear God’s voice. But to hear him we must come and be willing to listen.
In Matthew 11:26, Jesus invites us to this deeper rest:
“Come to me all who 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
This is where we will spend the summer, exploring the possibilities of living at rest, while at work and play.
Between Two Trees
by Debbie Csutoros
The rope falls perfectly
Forming a swing for the body.
One leg at a time gently crawls into
its natural sway.
The whole body lays back in rest between two trees.
How would this be if not for love?
Love sacrificed between two trees, that we might rest in Thee.
Are you resting?
Are you swaying in the comfort of His rest?
Choose this day
to rest…between two trees.
