A Moment of Rest

Posted on September 9, 2022 by Elizabeth Welte in Victory Call

“On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.” Matthew 13:1-2

I wonder, Lord, what was going through Your mind as You sat beside the sea?

Did You take in the beauty of the water and of the sky?

Did You look up and enjoy the clouds and the sun?

Did a gentle breeze cool Your face?

Did You relax for a few moments taking in the beauty of Your creation?

Perhaps a fish or two playfully jumped through the waves just like You told them to.

Did You dangle Your feet in the refreshing water?

Did You have a moment to sit alone with Your Father?

O, Lord, I can only imagine how You may have enjoyed Your few moments of rest – just before the crowds gathered and pressed in around You.

What do you do with your moments of rest?
