When I think of resting, I immediately think “NAP!”
Or just sleeping altogether
It seems that the older I get, the more I value rest.
the more I value staying in on a Friday or Saturday night and binge watching some kind of show
or staying in with friends and having a game night.
I began to treasure time and moments with others in an intimate setting more than going out and running the streets.
Although there is nothing wrong with doing that every once in a while.
I’ve learned to enjoy the resting periods in my emotions and my spiritual being too.
The moments where God says “Be still and know that I am God.”
Goes right back to time and process but instead of looking for solutions, resting on the reality that God can give us ultimate rest if we trust in His supernatural power to do the impossible.
Not so easy huh?
I can completely agree.
I am fast paced.
Always needing to know or make the next move.
I seldom find the time to rest until my body and spirit and being are completely worn down.
It is not good for us to wear ourselves out to get to a resting point.
It isn’t healthy but it also isn’t fair to yourself.
Not fair to your mental, emotional and spiritual stability.
You don’t even stop to smell the flowers anymore.
That kind of busyness and speed will make you lose sight of who you are and what you like.
That’s where I was a few months ago and God forced me to rest for a few weeks.
I must say, IT SUCKED.
It sucked bad.
But I did learn a few things and I’m going to share those with you:
- Time is everything.
- Process and change is difficult but necessary.
- Rest when you can. Enjoy your surroundings. Fall in love with the things that make you happy. Don’t wait for your life to come crashing to realize the value of those that surround you.
So to you I say, rest on my friends.
Until next time.
