Coffee and God: Rest

Hey all!

It’s the last Sunday of the month, and today rest is on my heart. I don’t sleep very much. I don’t have a hard time falling asleep, but I do have a hard time staying asleep. However, rest is crucial to so many bodily processes, such as healing and giving your brain the time it needs to process the day.

God showed us how to rest by resting on the seventh day, or Sunday for us now. Thus, it’s crucial for us to rest as well. It may not be on Sunday, especially if you work on weekends. But we all need to rest.

THE IMPORTANCE OF REST FOR YOUR HEALTH

For me, I grab the small moments of rest where I can — whether it’s sitting in the car, waiting for my kids to get out of school, at my son’s flag football game, or petting my dog or cat. Moments of reflection you could say. We need all kinds of rest — physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual — in order to function.

Rest is important. In today’s society, rest is often labeled as laziness. But days of “laziness” where you just recuperate at home are needed for your overall health and well being. So, take a moment today, and rest from activity. Read a book, the Bible, or have coffee with a friend and relax.

And if you have any good tips to share on how you squeeze in rest, leave a comment below. Happy Sunday!

  1. Sorry about your lack of sleep. I have that problem too, and you just take quick naps to catch up. I would like to thank you for all you have done with the notes every week, couldn’t do it with out you. Thanks, Joyce
