How do you rest? Are you getting enough of it in your life?
Rest: a bodily state characterized by minimal functional and metabolic activities. peace of mind or spirit
How do you rest? I’m the type who sits on the couch watching a movie while folding laundry, checking emails, plucking my eyebrows and texting my mom. The type of “rester” who beats herself up after a “lazy” Saturday. Too often I burn the candle at both ends , chronically overwork, and end up running myself into the ground. It’s those times I sleep in on the weekend and still feel tired. Days I don’t answer my phone but oddly long to speak to someone. As you can tell when I don’t take the time to truly rest, I start erring on the side of unhealthy and leaning towards apathetic. They say there is “no rest for the weary” Jesus tells us “Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” Matt 11:28 Unlike thousands of self-help books and I’m sure thousands more blog post , Jesus simply offers himself as the holistic solution to our weariness and burdens. He offers no 5 step plan of rest and relaxation. Instead He tells us to come to Him. In my continued “coming” to Him for direction I was recently able to take a trip to Canada. He opened all the right doors for me to go and with perfect timing. While there my friend @mash.elle took us to @nordikspanature_chelsea And boy of boy did I rest. Lol
— Relaxin’ in a winter wonderland! —
We see the word ‘rest’ and we think just chilling out maxing relaxing and though that is PART of rest there is more. I want to REST by being assured of God’s promises in my life. I hope you get some rest soon too
