Yay for Five Minute Friday. I am finding today's word interesting in my life. Just two days ago I had surgery and my orders for the next several weeks are to rest...not to overdo things. Resting is easy to do now, but in a week when the pain is gone, it will be harder. But I need to stay the course and rest in order for my recovery to be complete! So here's my take on rest today...be sure and check out more thoughts on Lisa-Jo's page.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
When you are stressed....God will give you rest.
When you are tired...God will give you rest.
God built rest into us from the beginning.
On the 7th day....God rested!
Rest is something we can feel guilty about doing.
One of the most common questions heard is "are you keeping busy".
We rarely ask each other "are you getting enough rest".
Why do we see rest as a negative thing?
Why do we feel we have to keep busy?
Resting...is good...it energizes us...it fuels us.
Don't hesitate to find the rest you need.
This requires saying no at times.
This requires setting boundaries.
As we enter this weekend, find some time to rest...rest in the Lord!
