And, God Rested.

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.

Genesis 2:2-3

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.
