6 Quotes to Bring You Peace


6 Quotes to Bring You Peace

When All You Want to Do is Escape from Life


Yesterday, I was a bit overwhelmed (and that might be the understatement of a lifetime!).

I work from home as a writer, and I have a book deadline that is looming. My husband is in Australia for work, and my young kids ages 7, 4, and 4 are always extra needy when John’s gone. (Insert LOTS of testing mom.)

Did I mention I’m also homeschooling? And I won’t dwell too long on my 20-year-old son who lives at home and still enjoys mom time, or my 84-year-old grandmother who lives with our family, or our puppy who’s still in the chewing phase and decided to put a nice hole in the living room carpet! (I wish I were joking!)

When I sat down with my Bible, devotional book, and journal yesterday morning I was empty. If anyone wanted to escape from “life” at that moment, it was me. But as I began to dwell on God’s truths, everything began to change. I was reminded that Jesus never intended for me to carry my burdens alone.

Instead, this is what He had to say:

Come to me. Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” —Matthew 11:28 NIV

Cast ALL your anxiety. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. —1 Peter 5:7 NIV


Do not worry. Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.” —Luke 12:22 NIV
