Finding RestFinding Rest

Peace Amidst Chaos

Is there such a thing as “Rest”?


Are you going and going and feeling like you’re about to burn out? Maybe you’re already completely exhausted and depleted. Wherever you are, know that you’re not alone. God wants to meet you right where you are and give you rest. If you’re striving in your own strength, He desperately wants you to release your efforts into His loving hands and trust Him to sustain you and work through you.

Here are some resources about the beautiful peace and rest that Jesus offers. We pray that these encourage your soul and help you to breathe... allowing Jesus to refresh your weary heart.

You Need Rest

You Need Rest

Jill and Pete Briscoe

But instead of resting, do you power through and intensify your efforts with work, family, and growing in your faith—only to become even more exhausted? Pete and Jill Briscoe open Scripture in this series and show you how to rest so that instead of doing good things for God, He’s doing God-things through you!

A View from the Porch Swing

A View from the Porch Swing

Jill Briscoe

Jill teaches from Psalm 23 and from Matthew 11 to explain that no matter what is happening in our lives, good or bad, the only way we can find true contentment in every situation is by trusting in the Lord. We're tempted to run from trouble. We have a hard time slowing down to relax in His pastures. But Jill describes these “rest stops” as important times of growth in which we experience firsthand the love and comfort of Jesus.

Time Bandits

Stuart Briscoe

There is never enough time! We have things we should do, things people tell us to do, and things we want to do. They all end up on our "to-do" list, which becomes too long! In this message from Stuart, he recalls early days of ministry when well-meaning friends gave him advice on how to be: more prayerful, more physically fit, well-read, well-rested, family-focused, and ministry-focused!

Jill Briscoe

Some of the most well-known Bible characters had bad days—just as we do.

In this series, Jill Briscoe brings six Bible figures to life during their darkest moments. Jill's thoughtful and practical messages will give you fresh hope that God can—and will—fill your empty places if you let Him.
