Life can be stressful.  It can be full of setbacks and disappointments that are hard to overcome.  If you let these consume you, you can lose sight of God’s plan for you and how much he loves and cares for you.  Here are three different ways you can find rest in God when life throws unexpected challenges at you!

  1. Find a quiet place to dive into the Word. One of the best ways to grow closer to God is by spending time with him and him alone.  When you give yourself time to read the truth about what God says, you can find rest in his promises!
  2. Pray continuously, not just when you feel like it. When I’m in constant communication with God, I automatically feel 10x closer to him.  When I’m simply thanking him for the things in my life, I feel at peace.  It puts into perspective how many blessings I have in my life whether I realize it or not!
  3. Play some good worship music. I don’t know about you, but music is one of the most calming things for me, especially worship music. I love listening to slow, calming music that puts me into a happy mood!  It might not work for you, but it’s worth a try!

I hope this advice helps you out next time you’re feeling down or far from God! 🙂
