This weeks question:
How do you rest?

We had a speaker at my church’s local womans retreat and her name was Beth Booram. She was speaking on her book The Wide Open Spaces of God: A Journey With God Through the Landscapes of Life. The one landscape she spoke on that really stuck out to me was the green pastures landscape.

Green pastures is where we find rest, but she pointed out that we need to choose to go there. So lately I have been intentionally looking for ways to rest everyday. I find this helpful because I often find when it’s time for me to serve the Lord, if I do not rest up, then I do not have the energy to do so. Right now I’m finding that balance between work and rest.

Some things I intentionally try to do everyday to find rest:

  • Sit down and eat with my kiddos and take the time to rest while I’m eating.
  • Take a 30 minute nap. I’ve also been “leading” my kiddos to green pastures and implementing a rest time for them during the day too.
  • Read a book.
  • Folding laundry, amazingly folding laundry actually helps me to rest. I have to sit down to fold laundry, and often I keep the television off so I can find a moment of quiet in my day.

SO those are all of the things I can think of. I would love to here what you do when God leads you to green pastures…

Faith – Four Week Mini Bible Study
When we believe in God we then learn to walk in faith and trust God. But first we must believe, and it’s up to us, we can either choose to believe in Him or not. But faith will mean nothing until we believe with all our heart that God is who He says He is.

  1. I am a Seventh Day Adventist and we start our Sabbath Friday at sundown and we rest until Saturday at sundown. We aren’t just laying around the house the whole time (though naps are usually part of our resting) but we fellowship with friends at church (resting from our work week), we eat meals together and take our time (resting from the hurry hurry meals we often have), we take time to get out in nature to see God’s beauty (resting from the todo list that keeps us in tunnel vision mode so often) and we spend time with God thanking Him for all He has done (resting from the cares and worry that come with life on this planet). Are we perfect in how we rest each week? No. But we specifically set aside 24 hours each week to show God we love Him and value Him as a family.
