Overview

"Come unto me," Jesus says to us, "and I will give you rest." But more often than not, says Penelope J. Stokes, we answer, "Thanks for the offer, Lord, but there's just too much to do." In Beside a Quiet Stream, she invites us to lean back and "take a deep breath and sink into the restoring depths of God's presence."

This unique devotional focuses on issues significant to Christians who are consumed with busyness—issues such as letting go of guilt, investing time in relationship building with God, moving from performance to acceptance, and redefining humility according to biblical perspectives. With words at once soothing and picturesque, Stokes invites readers to "immerse ourselves in the nearness of God's presence," walk down the only true path of restoration.
