Sometimes the most urgent & vital thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest.
Its true. Most of the time I (and I'm sure I am not alone in this) will say "Yes" I'll agree, but do I take the time to do that? No I don't. But when I get to a point in my daily life where all the little things of life build up, and I'll say to myself, whats the matter with me? why am I letting all these minor issues consume me, get me so worked up, to the point that I am going to pop? I slowly come to a realisation that..... that...... ..... I need to r e s t. sshhh. Don't tell anyone, they might think I am weak.
But Hebrews 4:16 says“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
and Matthew 11:28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
HE knows I need rest, and I only find that complete and utter renewal in Him. Forget the spa, although that is nice to ;) But its not lasting. The rest I find in God goes deep and is enough to last. Psalm 62:1 My soul finds rest in You alone.
