|"One place to find rest, coffee and a book."|
But here it is, in the Bible, being called holy.
The truth is that I’m influenced by some deep unhealthy need; to do, to produce, to achieve and that’s why I don’t value rest. At the end of the day I believe that I’m only as valuable as what I produce, what I achieve and what I accomplish.
It's not true though. It takes everything within me and even faith to realize something much more important, I’m valuable and worthy no matter what I do or don’t do. There's more.... I’m not the only one.
This includes you. You are important, valuable, and worthy too.
I want to value rest. I want to see it as holy. I want to be comfortable not doing. I need God’s help even in this; resting. It’s not that I don’t rest now, I just think I want to be more intentional about when I work and when I rest (and how I rest). Take care of yourself, of your spouse, of your children, by choosing to rest and do it on a regular basis.
How do you rest? Do you see your rest as holy?
