Have a seat!

Are you familiar with the parable about 5 loaves and 2 fish (John 6:1-15)?  Most people are and most people associate the parable with God’s amazing provision.  But this morning as I studied with Beth Moore, the parable revealed another lesson.

restJesus said, “Have the people sit down.” John 6:10a

Sitting down = a posture of rest
Rest in God’s Peace

That’s God’s Word for you – alive and living!



This posture of rest in God’s peace, I’m learning quickly, is especially relevant in motherhood.  As my children are growing, becoming young men, I cry out to God to guide me and give me wisdom.  Jesus says to sit down.  Rest. I’ve got this.
