Ahhh… these deep soothing turquoises invite relaxation and rest. Don’t you just feel more peaceful looking at them? Lose yourself in these cool colors and you immediately feel more at ease. These are the colors of the sea on tropical beaches.
But this Barrel Angel isn’t about losing yourself. She is all about helping you find and release the rest she is carrying. She holds the key out to you. Just take it. The key that unlocks and opens the door to rest is Release. Release your troubles. Release fear from your heart. We all know that worrying does not make today any better, it only saps strength from today. Since those worries and fears about tomorrow hardly ever materialize, it only leaves us exhausted and more worried about tomorrow’s tomorrow. Worry can make us physically sick too. Father God promises that if we look to Him and trust Him with our worries, He will keep us in perfect peace. And what is peace but rest? When we are at rest in God, even in the storms of life, we have confidence that everything is going to turn out ok in the end.
Like so many things in life, finding and staying at rest is challenging work. The Word even says we are to “labor to enter God’s rest”. Our Key to Rest Barrel Angel is here to remind us to keep on giving our worries over to God and trust Him. Take the key. Open the barrel and take out the rest you need.
