Sometimes our emotions are like roller-coasters. But God intends for us to be at rest, not to have extreme swings of highs and lows. Today we will look at some verses that remind us that God intends us to have peace and rest.

(Psa 23:1-3 NNAS) The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. 3 He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake.
