We explore the value of rest and how real rest is a by-product of a deepening relationship with God. Left to our own devices we will not rest…even though rest is a gift from God- a God practiced and God given rhythm woven into the fabric of human life. Jesus rested but we are too busy, too important, too driven to rest. We
desperately need to learn to value and enter into the rest which God invites us to embrace.
Rest is not a time of activity but of receptivity. We stop to savor God - to be still and know and be known by God.
Rest is a time for being with God and letting God shape, form, and mold us.
“Rest is a chance to gaze on God, to readjust our minds, realign our hearts, rest our priorities, clarify our commitments, and enlarge our perspectives.”
