If nothing else, this past week has proven to be a great reminder of how important it is to rest in the Lord. The Christian walk can be tiring and often discouraging. It's very easy to become weary in well doing. And that's why we need to rest in the Lord. It's only through that rest that we find peace and a renewing of the body, mind and spirit. With it, we feel ready and better equipped to live each day to its fullest. Without it, we feel stressed and overwhelmed.
You may not be able to get away for a vacation any time soon, but the invitation to rest in the Lord is offered continuously. It is always available. And I can tell you without a doubt, that it is a necessity for the Christian life. So go ahead! Grab a pillow, close your eyes, and find peace and comfort that can only be found in the arms of the Savior.
