Have you ever felt like butter scraped over too much bread? (Bilbo Baggins from the Hobbit)
We’ve all been there. We know we need to rest but we just don’t have the time. I know how this feels firsthand. Over the last several months, I was putting in full-time hours at the church, working an additional part-time job as an urban youth worker, raising a family, and planning the launch (like a grand opening) of Journey Church.
It was a crazy time but God taught me some life-changing principles about rest.
During that time God I wrote a 7-day devotional about what it means to truly take the Sabbath. If you’re a busy person (who isn’t?) this is perfect for you.
Get the free devotional when you sign up to receive my blog via email: Rest Assured: Seven Days to Stillness, Sanity and the Sabbath You Need.
Here are just three of the things I learned:
- Rest is to be received. You don’t have to understand everything that’s going on to receive God’s rest.
- Jesus invites us to exchange our burdens for His rest (a pretty good deal if you ask me)
- Taking a weekly Sabbath day helps us to enter His rest on a consistent basis
Sometimes we need to be aggressive about rest. I hope you’ll take advantage of this free devotional and learn from some of my journey. You’ll also get periodic updates on other devotional and leadership content. Enjoy…and rest!
