you can rest


You’ve been trying to heal for a long time.

Maybe you even look like you have it all together on the outside.

Maybe those closest to you know — because they love you — that inside you’re a mess.

Sometimes people say things like this:

Just get over it.

Stop talking about it.

Do something. 

And you try, because it’s what you want it way more than they do.

Or you stop talking about it and you stuff it down, down, down until it erupts in ways you don’t welcome.

Or you try to do A + B and it equals F- instead of C, as promised.

As we begin this five week study together with Proverbs 31 Ministries OBS team, will you do me a favor?


Sure, there are things you can do. Later on this study we’ll talk about how to partner with God in the healing process, but for this week I want you to rest in what has already been done for you.

When I wrote The Mended Heart, I almost made it complicated because that’s what we do. Then I heard the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit talking to me in that small prayer room.

Suzie, don’t make this complex or hard. Lead them to rest in Me. 

So your #TheMendedHeart challenge this week is to NOT DO these three things.

Don’t run or hide or isolate

Just stop right where you are. Let Him meet you right where you are, mess and all. ♥

Don’t try to earn His love

You already have it. It’s why He came.

Don’t try to do this on your own

Isn’t this the hardest? We try to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps (impossible!) or fix ourselves, when God is bigger.

Rest. In. Him. 

Take a breath. He’s got this. We’ll walk through it together.
