Rest In the Word
Don’t Forget to Rest
Mama, let me remind you again, DO NOT FORGET TO REST.
The hustle and bustle of our day to day IS time consuming, and some times we don’t make time to rest.
No Mama Winn.. you might be thinking.. I DON’T have time to rest. I am so busy!
Let me stop you right there and give you a different perspective. You are too busy not to rest! First of all, if you are anything like me, if you don’t make time to rest, you body will make the time for you. If and when that happens, your health could be poor and it could get worse.
I understand that you may have to work and that you are the only parent in the home. I get it, we are in the same boat, but your body needs to rest.
I am talking about an adequate amount of sleep and an adequate amount of quiet time with God.
God says, “Hey Mama! I AM here, I will give you rest.” OK so those aren’t those the exact words and in fact that’s a Mama Winn’s translation of Exodus 33:14. Yet, am I too far off? I don’t believe so. God really wants us to spend with him. I don’t know about you, but when I am reading the Bible and really trying to understand what it is saying to me, I am not thinking about the to do list that I have half way completed, I am not thinking about the worries of life. It’s during my quiet time with God that I really find rest. Time with God is so necessary, I am too busy not to make time for Him.
Signed- Mama Winn
