Rest and Relax With a Bowl of Beef Stew

No comments

Do you ever get overwhelmed because you take on more stuff than you can handle? I’m sure everyone has. I’m to blame for this for sure.

I feel like if I don’t have something to do at all times then I’m wasting my time. I have my hands in several projects, but sometimes I just feel weighed down.

God let me know in a dream that it’s okay to rest. Take time for yourself. Overworked folks can’t do God’s work or any other work when their bodies and minds are tired.

I woke up from my dream with a feeling of peace on my mind. That day was a day of rest for me. I did absolutely nothing. I found a quiet spot, read my bible, and prayed. Let’s just say I’ve never felt so much peace and rest in my body. 

So everyday I spend one hour by myself with the Lord. No matter how busy my life is I take that time to be with the Lord.

Find your quiet time and talk to the Lord. He will give you rest.


The verse for this week is Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. 

The recipe for this week is Beef Stew.

Beef Stew

4 teaspoons oil

2 pounds beef stew meat (cubed)

½ onion (chopped)

1 cup carrots (diced)

1 cup potatoes (diced)

1 pack Lipton beef mix

2 stalks celery (rough chop)

3 teaspoons flour

1 carton beef broth

2 cups water

Take cubed beef and roll in flour. Put oil in the pot to get hot. Add beef; fry until golden brown. Then add all remaining ingredients. Cover, let cook until everything is tender. 

From my blog to your kitchen, God bless and happy dishes.
