Whispers of Rest: It’s What I’m Reading Now

“A change in direction feels scary in the moment, but it leads us to our God-Guided Dreams. God sees the way ahead. But we need to trust Him and make room for Him first. God can only speak to us best when we allow Him room to guide us ahead.”

Bonnie Gray from Whispers of Rest

Dear Readers, 

I can’t let this day pass without telling you about this book,  Whispers of Rest.

Bonnie Gray crafts her words in a soulful way, taking you deeper in your relationship with God. I’ve made no secret of my physical pain, Whispers of Rest has been balm to my soul and my weary body. 

I make my way to layers of soft down every evening in sweet anticipation of the daily reading.

Whispers of Rest speaks to my wilderness journeyWords of comfort wrap around me with each daily reading. Ending with reflective questions prompting me to authentically process this season of life.

Bonnie’s words are beautifully written. A deep breath of fresh air. She writes in such a way I feel as if we are sharing a table, our struggles and hardships. As if we are friends.

Whispers of Rest is divided into forty days of devotions with the intent to “Revitalize Your Soul,” (from the sub-title), ending with a daily prayer. The prayers near the end of each daily devotion, a covenant renewal of your need for God and His provision.

I have been impacted in beautiful ways by Whispers of Rest!

“Dear Jesus,

It’s complicated. I’m complicated. You see how my affections have faded. Yet you take me in your arms now and you call me yours.

Love my heart back to life again. I want to know you more deeply. I give myself to you right now.

Light the fire of our first love. Then, I’ll glow again. Thank you for loving me so truly. I love you.
