Secured to the Door of Rest

“The LORD has taught me more in rest,

Than when I’ve strived for my best…”

Poem by denisebalog©

First mention of Strive

“And the LORD said,

 ‘My Spirit

Shall not strive

with man forever.” in Genesis 6:3 (NKJV)


Strive – duwn (doon) the root of #1777 (Strong’s Concordance)

Dalet, Vav, Noon

The Door – Secured/Nailed – to life activity!


“Then Jesus said to them again…

I AM the Door…(NKJV) John 10:7

Anyone who goes through Me

Will be cared forwill freely

Go in and out, and find pasture…

I came so they can have

Real and eternal life,

More and better life than

They ever dreamed of.”

John 10:9-10 The Message

Yep, Jesus has taught me more

In rest,

than I have ever dreamed of,

Or when I have

Strived at my very best!



ps: I love the pizza pictured at the entranceway of the door!

  1. “My heart is restless until it finds its rest in Thee” for His yoke is easy, If we know we have a Father who loves us, we know we can rest for He knows what is best for us! I love the pizza too! It is my dream to visit this place, thanks for the view and the wisdom!
