Are you looking for rest? The words Joy, Peace, and Rest are all very familiar words in our society. Yet, they seem so elusive when attempting to apply their power in our everyday lives. In today s busy world of instant communication, instant business, and instant access, we find ourselves living life in another very familiar term, ON DEMAND, making it almost impossible to just take it easy, relax, and spend time with the people who are most important to us. To God, nobody is more important than you. His desire is for us to enter into His perfect rest...and stay there. Rest is the state of heart that God created for all mankind - a place of true joy and peace. In this incredible book author Ron Marquardt shows us how we can rediscover God's place of rest. Get ready for your life to be transformed! As you find your place in God s rest, everything about your old life will fall away and you will begin to experience a perfect relationship with the Creator of the Universe, the One who loves you more than anything.
This book is a product of Mr. Marquart's authentic pursuit of who God really is. Encouraging, inspring, and revealing, these words have the power to set you free. Free from all of the prescribed religious mumbo-jumbo most of us have grown to actually embrace without realizing it. Prepare to have your eyes opened and heart enlightened in this powerful read.

He sees us without all the scars that we obsess about every day, when we look at the mirror of our past failures. Or we often
solidify His position on healings and blessings. He wants it to be the same here as it is in heaven! This key can be a great strength to people struggling with those areas where they don’t know what God’s will is. God has defined His will very specifically in His Word and reveals it by His Holy Spirit to all that will listen. We have been taught through the years that finding His specific will for our lives is a difficult thing that only a few figure out. Scriptures that I hope to shed some
