Day 1: Finding Rest

Day 1: Finding Rest

Finding Rest

A soul resting in God says, “I don’t need to know the details, I just need to trust in God.” Trust that at the right time, God will make things clear in His timing. He may not answer all the what’s, why’s, and how’s in our timing, but He will eventually make it clear. The only way to find rest for your soul is by entering a spiritual rest. The only way to enter a spiritual rest is by trusting in God. Our soul is where the spiritual battles are taking place. There is a constant pulling of thoughts, emotions, and wills. When we trust, pray, and wait on God, we will find rest for our soul.

He will lead, guide, and never leave or forsake us because that’s what He promised us (Deuteronomy 31:6). All the noise, all the thoughts and emotions will come under submission of the supernatural peace of God, which is found in His rest. If you’re seeking direction, rest in Him.

You can’t hear God and wait on Him if you’re consumed with all your thoughts and your busyness. The world says work, worry, and wonder, but the spirit of a SoulSister says wait, worship, and watch.


Ps 62: 1: “For God alone my soul waits in silence; From Him comes my salvation.” AMP
Phil 4: 6-7: “Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God. 7And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].” AMP
Deut 31:6: “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble in dread before them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.” AMP

Think About It

1. Think about a time where you went from work, worry, and wonder to wait, worship, and watch.

2. What are some ways that you can command your soul to rest?

Drie Woorde. Three Words.

Elke woord van hierdie eenvoudige vraag het 'n 𝓲𝓶𝓹𝓪𝓴 wat 'n reuse verskil kan maak in mense se lewens.

Those three words are so powerful but yet we forget the 𝓲𝓶𝓹𝓪𝓬𝓽 that it can make in another person’s life.

Ons gaan elkeen deur dinge waaroor ons nooit praat nie maar die seer en verwarring en selfs vrae bly daar. Dit knaag aan jou en jy wens net eenmaal dat iemand jou wil vra, raak sien en werklik omgee.

Everyone experiences life differently. We never talk about it but the questions remain.

So, om die 67-minute te 🆅🅸🅴🆁 vertel vir my in 𝟔𝟕 𝐖𝐨o𝐫𝐝e: Hoe gaan dit met jou. Sonder om bang te wees vir 'n skewe antwoord. Sonder om sarkasties te wees.

Hier is jou kans om te sê hoe dit werklik gaan. Ek is net 'n oor wat luister. Al kan ek niks doen om jou te help nie, kan ek luister en bid.

Let us 🅲🅴🅻🅴🆁🆃🅴 these 67 minutes and tell us in 𝟔𝟕 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬 how you are without the backlash or judgment or sarcasm that accompanies it.

I might not be able to help but I can pray.

Almal begin altyd met die huts en dit versprei soos 'n veldbrand so kom ons blaas weer lewe in die huts: #hoegaandit #howareyou

Hashtags spread like wildfire with every campaign so let’s begin to revive #howareyou and start to really take care of each other.


I am busy with the next book, the first book in a five-book series inspired by my son when he left for America 12 years ago.

I am currently looking for bet readers, so if you are interested have a look at the link and Let me know if interested. I can send the manuscript via Google Docs.

Just email me for the link at lynelle@kreativecollectiv.com.

I try to add a chapter a day so any feedback will be appreciated.

So far it is a 90k draft.

Genre: multi-generational family saga, Christian fiction, romance, mystery, and adventure.


Questions to consider throughout the storyline:

  1. How realistic do you find the characters?
  2. Is there any part within the story that's unclear?
  3. Since I know little about America or ranch life in general, your input in any of these topics will be taken into consideration. I try to do as much research as possible, but it's possible to still miss something. This will help to make the story more believable.
  4. Are the characters realistic and relatable?
  5. Does the storyline have a good flow or are there areas that needs to be rewritten?

Psalms 42. A Touching Word.

This morning I was reading the scripture and was so invigorated with the words of life that I want to share it.

God always begins in the inner man, and once we follow His promptings, the outer life changes. So, this scripture was such an uplifting and conformational blessing to me. I like to share it here.

Normally, I am a very private person regarding these things, but in it I think the Father allows me to be more forward and share my path.


Become Enlightened

We’ve covered a few wise steps to take to become women who move when God moves. We are aware of our words, we are responding instead of reacting, we’re activating NOW faith, and we’re even coming to God so that He can give us rest. For the remaining three days of our study, we’re going to cover the benefits of the SHIFT. Today, let’s discuss how the SHIFT enlightens you.

In the Bible, one excellent person to observe who experienced enlightenment because of a shift is Moses. Moses was watching sheep in the wilderness when an angel appeared in a burning bush. Moses went to investigate when he heard God calling him by name. When he arrived at the bush, God told Moses who He was, and Moses hid his face.

Over the years, God worked with Moses, shifting him into his purpose. Then, this happens a few chapters later, in Exodus 34:29: “When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord.”

Before the SHIFT, Moses hid his face in God’s presence and tried to commune with God in the darkness. After the SHIFT, Moses stood boldly in God’s presence, and his face was radiant. He was no longer hiding his face. Moses was able to commune with God in the light—God’s supernatural light—and be blessed.

There are two important realizations here:

  • Even when you don’t realize it, God is watching you: God lit the bush on fire because he knew Moses would see it—He was looking at Moses before Moses even knew he was being watched. God is always watching over you; you are never alone.
  • The external always reflects what’s happening internally: When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, he wasn’t even aware that GOD’S LIGHT was being reflected in how he showed up. God’s light, the internal, was being reflected on Moses’ face, the external. Moses’s internal shift in God’s presence resulted in something external that nobody could miss.

I love the Bible because Moses didn’t even know that people were seeing an outward change that was reflective of an inward SHIFT. You may have been looking for an outward change—you’ve been waiting for a car, a home, better health, a husband, a job, and all the while God has been conducting an inward shift in your heart, your mind, and in your words. It’s going to create results that nobody can miss in your life!

It's going to happen suddenly! All of a sudden, you look different. All of a sudden, you speak differently. All of a sudden, you move differently. All of a sudden, you’ll have this glow. Everything on the outside becomes enlightened because of the SHIFT that has happened on the inside.

Today’s Affirmation:

The better way is now my norm. What used to be my ceiling is now my floor. My face is radiant because of my time with God. He is the source of my radiance. He is my contentment. He is my full joy. He has gifted me with wisdom and enlightenment. As I stand in God’s presence, waves of refreshing peace wash over me. I feel His love. I am radiating in His presence. I am satisfied.

Question of the Day:

Where is God creating an internal shift in you?
