"2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3 So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation."
Genesis 2:2-3

Rest takes practice! For most of my life, rest was a foreign concept. I did not know how to slow down. I was like a train coming to a halt, it took a lot of effort and a long time, and by the time I finally slowed down, it was time to go again. However, through different life circumstances and wrestling with God, I can finally say I’ve learned how to rest. It’s through that God-ordained rest that I become recharged. For me, rest doesn’t mean lying around doing nothing; it means doing things that I love. My rest probably looks different than your rest, and that’s okay. In this fast-paced world we live in, I encourage you to work hard and rest well. If you are struggling with the “how,” ask God to help you. He is ready and willing.
