Mothers on the move, M.O. M., feel free to use that, start a church group of get together with friends, here is our verse. In Him, we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28. I really took that for granted and I was a believer, just not always a wise one.
We couldn’t even walk or talk without Him. He is our very breath, believer or not, we are His creation. But believers have His Holy Spirit, the breath of God breathed on us and infused in us to our very core, our being, His Spirit is deep in our hearts and spirits.
I have written before about spirit and rest, ruach. pronounced roo-ok, in Hebrew, and nuach, pronounced noo-ah, I have to go back and correct the pronunciation of that one, I was thinking it was amusing to have Hebrew rhyming words. Nuach doesn’t have the hard sound and it does mean rest, noo-ah, yep. Noah, it means rest.
He found grace in God’s eyes and so have as believers but have we? Are we struggling to make our lives an ark or have we made Christ our shield and safety? Have we moved into Him as well as moving and living in Him, allowed Him to be in our very being.
I want you to learn to live in that rest, in His Spirit. Don’t take for granted youth, health, or joy. I want Him to be your peace. To complete you as only He can. I was young, but I had some health issues. Always believing Him to be the healer, I moved on through, but at a frantic and sometimes fearful clip, never finding the rest He meant for me to have and walk in so I really could be free, and in Him, live and move, have my very being.
No matter what you think, He gives you your life and health. People who take vitamins and exercise have no guarantee against disease, disaster, they are not necessarily protected from drunk drivers or burglars, fires and tornadoes. even the storms of life. People in good health and shape to just pass on. Our lives are dependent on Him and He sees our hearts and hears our words.
But as believers, who find rest and safety in Him, we are covered, by His shed blood and grace, and that should gives us rest and His peace. We don’t have to strive to be healthy, happy or anything else because of His Spirit and rest, His power and His peace.
So go ahead and move, even with my back, I could ride a stationary bike bike, I did aerobics in the 80’s, but I would overdo it and be hungry trying to be thin and accepted, when I was already accepted in my beloved and that caused rejection other ways but in Him, I live and move and breathe and have my being.
I can can breathe, I can sing and praise Him, for He is my health and healer. He decides for me, He loves me and gives me that love to share, and I can rest knowing how blessed I was and didn’t even realize it, I was too busy running to catch it or maybe even away from Him when I really wanted to run to Him. I was too busy to rest, not anymore.
And as we continue to study Proverbs and mothers in May here is our verse. The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. Proverbs 4:18, and He does gives our ability to move in Him, sun up to full daylight and into the evening when we should wind down and rest, even working late we can do that.
So, mothers on the move, good for you. But don’t take your life or health for granted. Give it literal rest, but give your spirit, soul and body, His rest too, and that is a peaceful place to be. Jill111 /pixabay
