The first step is learning the simple difference between God’s job and ours. God’s job is to fix and to change. Our job is to depend, serve, and equip. This is the work of grace. And it is more restful than you can imagine.”
Jeff VanVonderen, Families Where Grace is in Place

Wow! Isn't that an amazing statement? One I have.not.learned.yet. I'm a fixer and a wannabe changer. Changer of myself. Changer of my husband. Changer of my children. Where is the rest in this? My job as mother, wife, friend, sister, leader is to depend on and serve the Changer. The One who created the master plan.

I'm looking for rest in my God today, that I might not struggle so hard in vain. May He give you rest today, too.
