Be still... Be present... Take a break from "doing," and simply "be" with God.
Enter His Rest is a 30-Day Guided Scripture Meditation Devotional to help you be still and rest with God through Christian meditation.
Find Rest in God's Presence
We've all had those days.
Days where we're so overwhelmed by all the pressures, expectations, and difficulties of everyday life, that we don't even stop to think about God.
We've all been there. It's easy to get so caught up in our thoughts, worries, and anxieties that we forget that God is right there with us through it all. We forget that His rest is a present reality that He's made the way for us to enter—even in the midst of our most stressful days.
It's on days like these that we most need to pause and rest in God's presence with us. Taking this time with God has the power to transform our days from a busy rush from task to task, into a trusting walk in the steps He has laid out for us.
With Christian meditation, we fill our minds with the truths of God's Word so that we can carry them with us into our daily lives. By meditating on Scripture, we cultivate trust in God, faith in His love and goodness towards us, and awareness of His presence with us.
Take time to simply "be" with God.
Enter His Rest is a 30-Day Guided Scripture Meditation Devotional to help you be still and rest with God through Christian meditation. The purpose of this devotional is twofold:
- To Learn How to Meditate on Scripture
This devotional includes a thorough introduction to getting started with Christian meditation. Also, each of the 30 daily meditations provides clear, step-by-step guidance to meditate on a Bible passage each day.
- To Rest and Be Still With God
The topics of the 30 Scriptures for meditation have to do with trusting God and finding rest and peace in Him.

Here's What Readers Are Saying
Jeanne-Claire from Florida says:
I have found this devotion so very helpful. I love doing it every morning. I read it alongside my Bible so I can see the full chapter that the verse is from. It really helps me to understand God's Word. Your style of guiding the reader through each day is exceptional and a wonderful help for busy people. My husband and I truly appreciate your ministry. Keep up your fantastic work.
Esther from Texas says:
“Enter His Rest” presents a much-needed invitation into God’s presence in the midst of a busy and hectic world. Through her carefully crafted introductory sections, Sarah explains the concepts of Christian meditation and mindfulness, making them accessible to both beginners and experienced practitioners. In the daily guided meditation prompts, she puts the focus on Scripture and encourages her readers to see familiar verses in new ways. She utilizes a variety of exercises and methods, keeping things fresh and interesting.
Bob from Pennsylvania says:
“Enter His Rest” has the power to transform your life. The introduction section at the beginning is a wonderful resource which will help the reader gain a better understanding of why meditation is helpful, the “how to” on the actual practice of meditation, and the importance of not making the process too rigid, but being open to the Holy Spirit’s guidance throughout your meditation time.
There is an indescribable depth to the way that Sarah guides the reader through each day’s meditation, encouraging the reader to use their God-given imagination to experience the Word of God, rather than just read it. Each day’s devotional is a slightly different format, ensuring that monotony and predictability never seep into the reader’s experience.
If you want the seed of God’s Word to take deep and lasting root in your heart, and not have it swallowed up and crowded out by the cares and concerns of daily life, this book is for you. Buy this book, you will not regret it.
Linda from Massachusetts says:
Despite being retired, I still don’t want to sit and meditate. I am prone to review my day at the end and to ask myself: “What tasks did I successfully accomplish today?” rather than “How did I fellowship with Jesus today?” or “Did I experience God’s presence today?” But Sarah makes coming into God’s presence very accessible.
Because everything about me is anti-meditation, I appreciate Sarah’s step-by-step guidance, as well as her practical tips and suggestions. I appreciate that she draws from “traditional meditation methods in church history” as well as Christian mindfulness techniques. I love the simplicity and straight-forward nature of the writing; despite feeling rich, it feels accessible. I love that it’s a 30-day commitment. That is within reach for many of us.
Sarah invites us into an experience of the presence of Christ rather than a passive experience of reading a prepared devotional.
