Find Rest

Spread the love

One-minute read.

“Work is a blessing. God has so arranged the world that work is necessary, and He gives us hands and strength to do it. The enjoyment of leisure would be nothing if we had only leisure. It is the joy of work well done that enables us to enjoy rest, just as it is the experiences of hunger and thirst that make food and drink such pleasures.”
― Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender

Find rest as we enter another Sabbath day. Praise God for the work He gave you this past week, and enjoy rest. Elisabeth Elliot wisely points out that if we didn’t have work, we couldn’t enjoy rest. We enjoy life’s experiences because we have opposites. Without bad days, we wouldn’t appreciate good ones. Without struggles, we wouldn’t appreciate peace. Without work, we wouldn’t appreciate rest.

Lavish in rest today. Spend time with your Maker and allow Him to re-energize your soul. Attend a local church service where you can interact with other believers and let them encourage you on the journey. Spend time reading scripture, asking God to open your eyes to its meaning and tell you how to apply it to your life. Rest in the Lord’s sovereignty and place your problems at the foot of the Cross. Trust God’s plan as you relinquish control to Him, finding rest.
