I talk about rest a lot.
The need for rest.
My advice to college runners: rest.
My advice to anxious hearts: rest.
My advice to every human being: rest.
And it’s Biblical.
Yesterday I talked about being made in the image of God. God is creative, so we are too.
And, God rested. We really need rest.
By the seventh day, God had finished his work. On the seventh day he rested from all of his work. God blessed the seventh day. He made it a Holy Day. Because on that day he rested from his work, all the creating God had done.
Amen. Amen. Amen.
Nature reminds me to rest pretty often. Living in Mammoth, I am blessed to be amongst incredible mountains, gorgeous wildlife, and lots of pinecones.
It’s serene and peaceful and restful.
Take a deep breath. Spend time in God’s Word. Walk slower. Rest is so necessary, needed, and God-created.
