The Day of Rest

Sydney's Chinese Friendship Garden
 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~ Matthew 11:28

How well do you rest? How often do you take time to truly rest, to allow your body and mind to regenerate so that you can give every person and task in your life the best of God's gifts to you?

Take time this week to rest. To put away the books, the plans, the schedules. No TV, no ipods, just you in a quite place for 30 minutes.  You may find that when you truly stop for a moment, sleep will come. That's ok, relax. You need it. 

Take 30 minutes this week to rest. True, God-honouring time to be in His presence. Pray He would restore you better than any Spa treatment, therapy session, shopping trip. 

Relax, and let Him hold you.
