Focus on God’s Goodness-Rest and Refreshment

May 23rd, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Psalm 23, verse 2.

With the LORD as my Shepherd, “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.”

In the presence of Jesus, there is peace for our soul. He is not a harsh task-master who places unrealistic demands on us. He comes alongside of us to bear our burdens and to refresh us with His love. The presence of Jesus is a place of security and serenity.

Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you 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.”

Rest and Refreshment for our souls reveal the goodness of God and are reasons to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
