Five Minute Friday {Rest}

Gypsy Mama's Five Minute Friday -


"We write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just write or not."
Writing prompt this week: Rest


Go.

Rest.
How?
So much to do.
Menial tasks, which must be done.
But also important things.
So many people to serve & help.
So many things to make & do.
So much work.  Work, work, work...

We were created to work.
We were created to serve.
to care, to reach out beyond ourselves.

And we can get pretty darn tired just thinking about all that can be done.

Rest.

We were created to rest.
We require rest.

Don't just call it "me time" or a "luxury".
It is a real need.

We were created to rest.

Don't be quick to judge rest as selfish or lazy.
Be still.  Stop. Be slow to speak.
Rest.

God rested & He is perfect.
How much more do I need rest.

Our only purpose is not just to care & serve for others.
Our first purpose is to love God.
yes.  Part of that is doing.
But a lot of that is resting.
Leaning on Him.
Believing He will.
Growing in faith...

Stop.

So very nice to meet you over at the Gypsy Mama's. So glad we can recognise the importance of taking time out to rest, pause, breath ... and to just be still. Lovely post :)
