Rest To Refresh




I used to get so tired. I was the type of person who would work until exhaustion. Can you relate? Whether it was cleaning house, gardening, running errands, or literally working. I’m aware there’s such a thing as work heartily, or put your heart into it. But I wouldn’t stop until I got done what I was hoping to get done no matter how long it took me, or the cost to my physical or mental self; leaving me feeling like a floppy rag; and too tired to move on. I was running myself into the ground.

But thanks be to God for stopping me before I buried myself. In His Word He showed me a new and better way to do what I was trying to do. He showed me the value of resting in between. I discovered that when I have adequate rest I can do my best not only for myself, but for others, and most importantly for God.

If you were like me, or perhaps still is, just stop and take a rest and refresh your soul. You will be stronger and more energized to do what you are trying to do without becoming exhausted. Please stop being too busy to take a rest.

“He makes me  lie down in green pastures, He leads me besides the still waters. He restores my soul” (Psalm 23:2).

I will keep on thanking God for providing rest for me.  By Hertistine Washington/
