Rest and Release
A 4-Week Bible Study
Do you struggle to find rest for your soul, on the hamster wheel of life?
Do you feel like your load – your portion in life – is a bit too heavy and wonder what God is doing or why you must struggle and wrestle so much?
Do you wish you could just release it all?
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.
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.
This Bible Study is unlike my other studies.
It offers a daily devotional – 5 days a week – that I’ve written inside your journal.
I will lead you to the passages in scripture that have spoken to me and share some of my thoughts, a reflection question, and space to “SOAK” the passages of scripture in, for yourself.
I also offer a weekly practical challenge of something I do in my home that helps me rest and live blessed.
I pray that your time spent in God’s Word will lead you to resting and releasing all of your burdens, so you can live a life of peace and freedom in Christ –no matter what you are facing.
Join me on this journey, as we walk with the King.
