IN THE STILLNESS OF GOD’S PEACE, I REST.
Far from a luxury or indulgence, rest is an integral part of my life. Periods of rest help my body recoup from its toil and give my mind time and space to settle from stimulation and effort.
My soul responds to my restful interludes by sinking deeply into the awareness of my oneness with God. In times of meditative stillness, I touch eternity and discern an absolute truth beyond my daily life.
Any day and any time can be a Sabbath. I keep this time holy by bringing the awareness of God into my heart and soul. I am grateful for my restful interludes and cherish the moments I can bless my mind and body with wholehearted, intentional rest.
So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation.—Genesis 2:3
