Summer is here! Enjoy the longer days, laid-back weekends, vacations, trips, and special family moments! It’s important to take a break from things from time to time. As we look forward to the next couple of months, let’s remember to rest our bodies and minds.

BUT…don’t forget that true rest comes through Jesus. In order to have our best summer ever we will need to focus on what God wants to teach us about Himself, ourselves, and others. Living life to the fullest starts with a relationship with Christ. Praying, reading His Word, and gathering with others to serve and worship are vital ways to feed that connection! As we grow this summer, let’s remember to find true rest and peace in Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 4:8 “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

Matthew 11:28-30 “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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
