  1. I think true rest–as in quieting the mind and spirit–is difficult for most of us. I like to picture myself sitting at Jesus’ feet with my worries and to-do’s tossed aside.

  2. Oh Ginger.
    That verse keeps coming up. I wonder if God is trying to tell me something. yikes.

    Rest. Relax. Important things for sure!!
    and see you TOMORROW!!!

  3. Rest – SO hard. But I’ve found changing the “noise” in my head helps sometimes. Instead of going over those to-do lists, I force myself to recite memory verses in my head, or hymns, or whatever. After a while, it often “sticks.

  4. Rest and relaxing is something that takes intention effort, at least for me. Music or reading scripture helps me settle my mind and spirit to that place where I can hear His voice. Great article and reminder. Blessings!

  5. Run run run til we kerplunk! That’s about it right now. Actually, my body has forced me to relax and rest lots so my kerplunk happens faster than most people’s.

    Hope you can find rest in the midst of the busy-ness.

  6. This is going to sound terrible, but I think my dog has done the best job of teaching me to rest. I wanted a “snuggly” lap dog and got a Westie. Not snuggly… unless you are napping. So if I want to pet the dog, I have to rest! : )

  7. I’m forced to rest way more than I want to because of my disease, but yet I still don’t really rest in my spirit, just being quiet before God. I’m always doing something mentally. It’s something I need to work on, too.
