Rest & Sweet Potato Quiche

Genesis 2:2 (erv)

God finished the work he was doing, so on the seventh day he rested from his work.

Rest. It’s one of those things you either love or you hate. I’ve gone through seasons of both. There were times when I loved to rest; I would nap every free second I had. I would close the blackout curtains, put my phone on silent, and sleep in as late as I could. But recently, I’ve had trouble resting. If you experience the same thing, today’s topic is for you, sister.

Somewhere along the way, I got the notion that the less I rested, the more productive I was. And the more productive I was, the more valuable I was. And that idea has followed me for a long time.

I struggle to rest in all areas of my life; work, workouts, planning… all of it. When the TV is on, my laptop is also open so that I can work at the same time. When I have a planned rest day, I do something “restful” like pilates or yoga (sorry, but have you done pilates? because that is not rest).

And I won’t get stuck too long on this topic, because chances are, if you also struggle to rest, you already know what I’m saying. You can feel your body getting tired, and a desire to just ease up, or take a little break. But your mind says “nope, not today ma’am.”

Here’s your reminder that the God of the universe rested. He spent 6 days doing what He loved; creating. And then, He rested. Not because He was tired, but because rest has a place and purpose; an important one. On the day that God rested, He took a step back (metaphorically, of course) and admired His work. He soaked it all in… I don’t know that for sure, but I’m assuming.

If God rested, it must be important. And as strong as you and I think we are; we’re not even close to being on God’s level. So, it’s time. Take the rest your body, mind, and soul desperately need without feeling guilty or unproductive. You deserve it; not because of anything you’ve done (even though you work super hard), but because God says that you’re the same brand of amazing and special no matter what you produce or accomplish in life.

Do you struggle to rest? What do you find yourself worrying about or focusing on instead of resting?

Pray

Thank God for giving you the gift of rest.
