I think sometimes we forget how important it is to rest. We’re constantly being pulled in every direction with work, social media, family, sports, school and so on. We spend every minute of our day jumping from one thing to the next, and any free moment is filled with watching tv or being on our phones (I’m so guilty of this). What happened to sitting on the porch with a drink and listening to the crickets, or huddled around the campfire telling stories and singing, or even just laying on our bed, closing our eyes and not thinking about anything?
On the seventh day, God rested. Did he need to? No, but he was setting and example for us, because we actually NEED, not want, rest. Rest is a necessity, and not the kind where you have a day off and fill it with chores, appointments and anything that isn’t “work”. We need to step back and be quiet, and take in what’s around us. Reflect on everything we have to be thankful for, and live in the moment. It’s funny that we look at Biblical times and how they took off on the Sabbath, even from cooking and traveling, to rest. I think it’s more important for in now than it was for them then. When was the last time you truly rested?
Russell and I are learning what that means in our own lives, both of us running a business and learning to set limits and boundaries while still putting out all into those businesses and our marriage. In the spirit of rest, we are taking a short trip (we have found that a change in scenery multiplies how refreshed we feel) by taking a 2 day camping trip. With that, we will not be using our phones and social media, so please be patient if you’re trying to contact us.
I’d love to hear what rest looks like for you!
