Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that life is not all toil and tribulation. God, who has fashioned us -that’s in Psalm 119:73 – makes sure to put those restful places on the paths for us.
When I read this message, I think about living in Virginia. There was a trail, through the forest, that led to a riding arena. I loved to walk that trail! It was my place of refreshing, of quieting my soul. I didn’t think about it that way then, but that’s exactly what God was doing for me. He was refreshing my spirit and quieting my soul with each step I took. I can almost still smell the scent of the trees and the stables as I would near them.
Sometimes we have to seek out those places. I’ve always found that the farther away from the city’s hustle and bustle I get, the easier it is to find them. If you can’t get out into nature, try a zoo, or other nature exhibit. We do have some awesome ones right here in Las Vegas. Shark Reef and Sigfried & Roy’s Secret Garden are two that come to mind. I’ve been to both places, and absolutely loved them! Taking some walks on those quiet paths is a good habit to get into, for refreshing and quieting your soul.
Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
