“Rest” Lyric Video

Worried? Anxious? Worn down?

Jesus is saying,
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

We invite you to allow this recording to escort you into God’s gift of rest. Get into a quiet place free from distraction. Allow what He speaks to replenish your soul as you take in each word from Jesus. Let Him lift tension. Let Him carry your anxious thoughts. Deeply breathe in His love. Allow times of resting in His Presence to bring change—for the rest of your life.

All our songs are written by Donna Jaree Brooks. Her writing is rooted in worship, yet also draws from clinical experience working with hurting individuals as a psychotherapist. Holy Spirit-infused music can set an atmosphere for miracles of healing.

“David would take a harp and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him.”
1 Samuel 16:23
Our heart is to help you enter deep realms of God’s Presence and be renewed. Lifted into a place where peace overtakes soul noise. Where the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus. Where we’re transformed by His power as we encounter His love—and rest in His goodness.

Experience Israel 2021

We’d love for you to experience Israel with us!

Sept. 20-30, 2021

Registration extended until March 24

Some refer to the land of the Israel as the “Fifth Gospel,” because it still speaks, profoundly bringing the stories of the Bible to life.
As a devout Jew, Jesus and His family made the arduous trip from Nazareth to Jerusalem many times to worship. We want to experience Israel not just as tourists, but inviting the Holy Spirit to do a powerful and personal work in each of us through our pilgrimage of worship.
You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Walk the same streets of Old Jerusalem, where Jesus walked
  • Watch shepherds tend flocks on a Bethlehem hillside
  • Be baptized in the Jordan River
  • Float in the Dead Sea
  • Pray at the Western Wall and Garden of Gethsemane
  • See the recently discovered 4,000 year old gate Abraham likely walked through
  • Experience a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee
We’ve worked extensively with the Center for Holy Land Studies and Dr. Tracy Paino over the past several years. There’s no one I’d trust more to create a rich, safe, meaningful and educational trip of a lifetime. I believe experiencing Israel will forever change how you’ll interact with the Bible and deeply enrich your relationship with the Lord.”
