Rest is important. Rest is required. Rest is essential to being healthy.
Often we neglect rest as an option. We look at times of healing and restoring as things we COULD do not but things God has CALLED us to do. When the truth is we’ve been called to rest.
Schedules are demanding. There seems to be an endless supply of people who are grabbing for our time and attention. When you have a night off it’s almost like a prize because you never know who might call or what they might want. Rest is hard to find but scripture tells us we need it and we deserve it.
This year, be productive, get stuff done, accomplish the goal, see the vision and make it happen but don’t forget to be still sometimes. Don’t forget to rest. It’s in the resting, the slower moments, that God truly speaks into our hearts.
