#236 Taking time out to rest

Many times in life whether we are businessman, a stay at home mother, or college student, we sometimes have so many things to do in one day, that sometimes we may feel like we are falling behind. In some sense, life does pull at us in all sorts of directions. We see in the Biblical times, that when Jesus walked the earth, life was much more simpler without any of the fancy technology that keeps us so preoccupied.


Today, we have the internet to help us stay connected with the rest of the world, and we rush from meeting to meeting, place to place, without really being able to enjoy the simple things around us. Even especially with our work we sometimes neglect to spend time with family and friends, all in the while trying to achieve some success or accomplishment, all the meanwhile, thinking that it will bring us some sort of happiness. We dream of purchasing the new car, meeting the right spouse, upgrading to the new house, all searching after the so-called American dream, and yet we lose our sense of true purpose of getting to know the people right in our midst. 


Resting, taking time out for yourself to refresh, journal, spend time hiking, or resting your body is helpful for all of us in the midst of this noisy, busy life that we all live in. That may mean putting away your phone, getting off the computer, not watching TV, and just taking time out to rest your mind, meditate on God’s goodness and love, and finding refreshment to quiet our souls and find our identity not in finding approval from any person or job or title, but simply in being a child of God, beloved and precious in His sight..
