Thrive not Strive

A great deal of our life is striving. We strive to get everything done, we strive to make ends meet and strive to ‘keep up with the Joneses.’

I do feel that this is not how God wants us to live. It is God’s will that we should rest in His love and not stress ourselves. In creation He has given us all beauty and resources that we can ever need. There is plenty of food for the whole world if only we would learn to share and not be greedy. There should be no hungry mouths or starving children. God’s resources are bountiful and plentiful. After all, God saw what He had made and it was good.

The beauty of the countryside lifts our spirits and feeds our souls. Jesus says rest in Me for My yoke is easy and my burden is light. No more striving; let us thrive with the Lord.
