Ah it is a great day! It is sunny and I have not done much today. Yes some laundry and some writing in one of my books. But other than that… Oh yes a work out this morning and some early bird shopping. But it has been nice, to actually do nothing, or less than usual. A well needed rest. Rest is important.
God think it is so important that he urges us to do so. To rest at night while sleeping, or in his arms, or on the seventh day.
To rest is to reflect and listen to Him. There is physical rest, mental rest and spiritual rest. Spiritual rest is as important as breathing, or we will not be able to follow God and go where He leads us. In order to get that, we need to get physical rest in order to get both mental and spiritual rest. Spiritual rest is best achieved through prayer. When we talk to God our spirit connects with the Holy Spirit and get renewed energy by just being lifted up and into Gods arms.
So how do we get to rest in and with God?
9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; 10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
It is good to keep it in mind, especially now when so many are mentally stressed out due to Covid. I can only urge to pray. Stop whatever you are doing and seek Him in prayer. Seek Him for comfort and friendship. Get to know Him and your spirit will rest. Maybe it will be easier now when we can see the light in the tunnel. Soon we can slowly get back to our lives, but we will no longer be the same. What kind of person we have become is up to us. Are we better or bitter. It is a choise to make. I for one hope I will better. I know for sure that I will not be bitter. Why? Because being bitter hurst every one around me, just as being better. Just the latter one brings joy to everyone instead.
So remember to rest and seek the Lord
