Let’s talk about the art of resting…
Why? Because it’s the Monday after Easter Sunday!
This post will be purposefully short…we, too, are resting today. Yes, there is follow-up to be done, calls to be made, e-mails to be sent, thank-yous to be said, bills to be paid, and teams to be formed because of all that was done for the Kingdom yesterday in all of our Easter services, but it’s important we all take a day to just rest and celebrate.
Jesus did, so we must. God did, so we can. We’re no good to anyone tired. Refresh and replenish yourself today. And just in case you’re one of those women who doesn’t know how to rest, here’s a few pointers based off the actual Webster’s definition of the word:
: to get rest by lying down — Go lie down and take a nap.
Turn off the worry. Deal with all the problems, things that need to be fixed, issues with your team tomorrow. It will all still be there later. And if need be, turn off your phone.
Open your Bible, not to prepare for any message, sermon, blog or counseling session, just read it to make yourself strong. Spend some time praying and reconnecting with God who can fix what needs fixing in you and support what needs supporting in you. Also, make sure and spend time today with those who love you the most, your family, kids, spouse. And time spent is always better when you’re in pjs!
