Rest like God rests.
I’m exhausted most of the time.
Aren’t we all?
We work, usually at more than one job. We sign-up our kids for a bajillion activities. We feel compelled to participate in several ministries at church. And of course, we like our entertainment . . . which usually involves some sort of exertion.
It’s difficult to fit in time to rest. And even when we go to bed, we toss and turn, thinking about what needs to be done tomorrow.
Why not rest like God rests?
He only had seven days in the week, just like us. And even though He had WAY more to do, he still rested one day a week.
Let’s take a lesson from the Creator of the Universe, and give ourselves some down time. Not just from work, but from responsibilities.
Take an entire day off.
Sounds foreign (if not impossible), but let’s try it.
Pick a day. Any day.
Then stay home. Sit there. Hug the kids. Talk to the hubby. We’ll be worth more the next day when we hit the workforce at full speed.
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Genesis 2:2 NIV
