Sunday Verses

Take Time to Rest
Happy Sunday! Like much of the country, it has been cold here in Montana. And while that is not unusual, for me it sure has induced a need to hibernate, more so than usual. I have been happy to stay home, avoiding social events, but that has made me feel a bit guilty. Why do we feel like we always have to be doing? It isn't from God.There are several verses in the Bible telling us to rest--from work, from worry and fear, from stress and anxiety. Jesus needed and took time to rest. When we allow ourselves time to slow down, to renew in quiet, to pause, and embrace rest rather than feel guilty about it, we are able to better connect with Jesus. Give yourself permission to slow down, receive God's gift of rest and grace, and enjoy the quiet days.
