In a busy and often frazzled world, times of rest can seem few and far between. It’s become a practice, a habit that we have to be intentional about building into our daily routine. On days that I find myself overwhelmed with tasks, questions or fear of the unknown future, I have to take a moment to sit back and remember that God offers a rest that not only offers peace and comfort, but a rest that provides hope and energy to continue moving forward. Experiencing rest in the grace-filled presence of God is invaluable as we look to find motivation, strength and confidence for tomorrow (or even the next 30 minutes).
“Let all that I am wait quietly [find rest] before God [in God alone], for my hope is in him.” Psalm 62:5 (NLT)
