Five Minute Friday - REST

This is my very first attempt at participating in The Gypsy Mama's "Five Minute Friday" and the topic is REST.

The first thing that enters my mind when I think about REST is the rest that we enter into as Christians when we trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.

In Matthew 11:28 Jesus tells us, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

That makes me think about a little song that our five older children used to sing when we were part of the Free Will Baptist Church back home and they were small. The song was "Fishers Of Men" and the second verse went like this...

"Hear Christ calling Come unto Me
Come unto Me Come unto Me
Hear Christ calling Come unto Me
I will give You rest
I will give You rest
I will give You rest
Hear Christ calling Come unto Me
I will give you rest"

My five minutes are up so I will stop here, but before I go, I pray that all who read this will enter into the rest that can only be found by making Jesus Christ Lord and Saviour. Have a beautiful and blessed weekend!

All My Love,

  2. Love that song!! Brings back great childhood memories. One of my favorite things about having kids has been remembering all of those bible songs from when I was a kid and teaching them to my boys. Thanks for sharing!
