“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Life has a way of moving faster than we want it to. There are days that we all feel as if we are chasing behind ourselves and desperately trying to keep up. As technology has changed, so has time and society. We are now living in a fast-paced, quick fix, and get it all done today world. Without even noticing it many of us are exhausted. Being a woman in today’s society complicates things even more. We work, assist our partners, and raise our kids. We wear so many hats: employee/boss, wife, mother, friend, daughter, volunteer, church member, and about 20 others. Each one of those hats demands our immediate attention in our minds. They also each drain our energy and eliminate the time that we have to actually rest.
Remember ladies rest is extremely important and there is nothing lazy about it. Our lives and bodies need it to truly function well. We have to take time out and rest. I’ve read studies that the average adult needs about 6 to 8 hrs asleep a night. Are you getting that? It’s also a good idea to get some breaks in during the day. Take 15 minutes out of you day, daily to just rest. Use that time to clear your heart and mind, so that your body is able to rest a litte. Let’s all start this week.
“Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength… It is wisdom to take occasional furlough. In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less.”
– Charles Spurgeon
