Hope and Peace for a Weary Heart

“God wants us to lean into Him. He wants us to begin by knowing that we are not enough to do this. We need Him. We need His strength, His power, His daily grace and sustenance.” Author Catherine Claire Larson is on the podcast today with peace-filled truth that brings a deep, restful breath to our weary souls. She re-centers our hearts and minds on what and Who is most important—to keep God, His Word, and prayer at the center of our parenting and all we do. He sees you. He is with you. And He is for you.

He will tend his flock like a shepherd; he will gather the lambs in his arms; he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young. Isaiah 40:11 ESV

Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. Psalm 121:4 ESV

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 ESV

But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” Mark 10:14 ESV

“Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:34 ESV

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” Matthew 6:25-29 ESV
