How long has it been since you took some quality time to rest, refresh, renew and restore your body, mind and soul? Maybe, today is the time to get started on your personal journey of mental, emotional and spiritual healing!
Rest is an important theme mentioned throughout Scripture. God wants His people to practice and experience rest as they toil through the challenges of life.
The practice of rest was first established by God Himself in Genesis 1—2. After creating the world in six days, God rested from His work. This model of six days of work with one day of rest was something God later commanded to His people. God expects His people to observe a time of rest, refreshment and renewal. (Exodus 16:21–23).
God cares deeply about your well-being and He wants YOU to be healthy. His desire is that you experience rest. Can we observe a day of rest as an expression of our faith and trust in God? Absolutely. Taking a day of rest is one of the best ways to reconnect with God after a season of hard work. How are you taking care of yourself physically, emotionally and mentally today? Take some time to renew and restore the inner you.
