Rest in God

As you admire the beauty of the rose, and enjoy its fragrance, so learn to admire and enjoy the really good and pleasant things in life; and as you shun its thorns, so shun the thousand snares and allurements of the world, and rest your soul upon God, the source of all good. Maria Hannah Nutting Knapp

depressed, distressed – rest

Look without and be distressed.

Look at Jesus and be at rest.   Corrie ten Boom

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, . . . Hebrews 12:2
