If you are the parent of a special needs child and you live in California you are probably feeling a little bit of unrest regarding the potential state budget cut proposed that will affect thousands of kids receiving MUCH NEEDED therapy at the CCS MTUs (Medical Therapy Units).
This scripture has helped put me at rest and remember that God is ultimately in control and I must have faith and trust in Him during this time of uncertainty!
Amplified Bible (AMP)
For we who have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest, in accordance with His declaration that those [who did not believe] should not enter when He said, As I swore in My wrath, They shall not enter My rest; and this He said although [His] works had been completed and prepared [and waiting for all who would believe] from the foundation of the world.
We can enter God’s rest just because we believe in Him!
Joyce Meyer, In the Everyday Life Bible, comments on what rest means. “Rest is freedom from excessive reasoning struggle, fear, inner turmoil, worry, and frustration…” pg 2037.
I pray that we can all take a deep breath and remember that God is in control and will make a way for our precious kids to get the help they desperately need! I’m holding onto hope and putting my rest in God!
