Isaiah 57:1-2 The righteous man perishes, and no man takes it to heart; And devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from evil, He enters into peace; They rest in their beds, Each one who walked in his upright way.
Psalm 23 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Hebrews 4:9-11 There remains therefore a Sabbath rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall through following the same example of disobedience.
What emotions do these photos evoke in you?
I don`t know why, but I felt lead to post a few promises from Jesus today. I think concentrating on verses like this: can slay fear, worry, and stress. Satan is the author of those emotions. Maybe you can claim one of them today. And always remember– sadness, feeling down, and experiencing disappointments is not wrong. They are natural emotions. Jesus wants to experience those with/for us too.
Rest in HIM today.
I hope some of that made sense.
