Relax, Refresh oneself, and recover strength! What am I talking about here? I'm giving you the definition of the word REST!
One of my sweet blogging friends posted that even though she really was not looking for a "word" for the year 2018......the word
REST came to her mind.
Another dear blogging friend of mine......left a comment for me just this past week mentioning........ that with all the crud that I've had....perhaps, I just needed to rest! Let my body REST!
Now.....this is what I call resting!!
It is true....Our body has a way of letting us know that it needs rest. Way too often, I ignore those signs and just keep on trucking along.
What usually happens is that after so long of trucking along, my body says: NO MORE! It's at these times that I finally have to take a few days to recoup.
As I was thinking about this word REST......I realized how much my mind needed a rest. I'm pretty sure, that just like many of you, our minds have been on overload since about September!!
September....School gets back into swing.....we have Fall festivals.....Decorating....Parties.....Trick R' Treat......Thanksgiving....cooking......Decorating.....Christmas.....giftbuying......wrapping.....cooking.....Christmas with Families......and sometimes, we might throw in a Fall vacation.
But....how many of us really rest even on a Fall vacation? Even though WE usually take a September vacation......rarely is it a RESTFUL vaca!!!
Our vacation schedule is so planned out, that it leaves very little time to relax.
For me.....it is very difficult to settle down by the time January gets here. I am overwhelmed with this huge onset of boredom, after having just come away from the past.... 4..... super busy months.
Do you have any idea how difficult it is to rest when you are bored?
This is a very difficult task......for me anyways!
God's word tells us to rest......it say's to BE STILL. How can we possibly hear God speaking to us if we never take time to be still and REST.
This world that we live in.....is so very demanding! Demanding of our time and over demanding when it comes to being productive.
I would love to know how many times a day the word HURRY is spoken. Hurry up...... are the two words that COMMANDS our days.
Are any of you hungry for REST? I know that I am.
Sam and I have a business trip this next week that requires quite a bit of driving. Although we will be spending many hours on the road.....I plan on sitting back and giving myself the opportunity to rest. I usually help with the driving, and I will again this time....but instead of allowing my mind to be absorbed with what I need to do two weeks from now....I'm just going to take in the scenic views and enjoy myself.
Hugs to all....
