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. – Matthew 11:28 – 30, NIV
And He will give you rest.

Pushing, striving, and straining are not how God intends for you to live, work, or serve. Instead He instructs you to seek Him first, trust Him always, and obey His Word. Choose that path and He will accomplish and complete all He desires to do in you and through you. Align with Him and the boundaries and balance in this life online and off line become clear. Surrender your ways and move in His.
How magnificent this invitation to exchange a life of striving for a life of thriving in the abundance of His overflow.
Unending Love - Amazing Grace
By Tami Heim
I love weddings.
Regardless of the grandeur or simplicity of the ceremony, I find weddings breathtaking, sacred, and bursting with promise. And so it was when my daughter, Zoë, married Matthew Perry Henry Malone in the summer of 2009. The wedding theme was “Grace and Love” and their first dance was to a Kutless song of the same title.
Sweetly overwhelmed by the grace and love of the One that redeemed them, Zoë and Matt wanted their wedding celebration to be an outpouring of God’s presence in their lives. Undeniably inspired by this special day and their passionate vows to relentlessly pursue God, I’m drawn to quotes about grace.
This week I felt a gentle nudge to share some of my favorites with you. My prayer is that each one reminds you how preciously you’ve been wrapped in His unending love and amazing grace. I’m also praying that if you find a favorite quote here, you will take a moment to copy, paste, and post it so others can be encouraged, too.
...day after day he carries us along...Psalm 68:19
He who has God has everything; he who has everything but God has nothing. – St. Augustine

It’s a tumultuous venture, this walking by faith. At one time or another, you encounter the completely unexpected followed by the unthinkable. And when it happens, the impact of it brings you to your knees, able to utter only one desperate word – “Why?”
It’s an intense battle when you’re that overwhelmed. First there’s shock and anger, then comes denial, “This can’t be what my great, almighty, and loving God has planned for me – not me, not His beloved child.”
