Taking Time to Rest

Yesterday I accomplished nothing. I did participate in Blogger Chat, but other than that all I did was rest and watch movies. But I was following doctor’s orders, for once, for post operation care. He told me, “just rest over the weekend and you’ll be okay.”

There are times our physical bodies need rest. There are also times we need rest spiritually, We need time with God, with Jesus, away from the business of life. Jesus needed that when he was on earth. In Luke chapter 5 sandwiched between accounts of miracles by Jesus is the short verse 16:

 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

Jesus took time away from the crowds, away from the demands of life, and prayed in places where he could be alone.

If Jesus needed time alone with God the Father, how much more do we need time alone with God?

So today will be another day of physical rest for me and also spiritual rest. I will watch worship service online, take time to be with Jesus, and then relax the rest of the day.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. It’s so good that you have taken time to rest spiritually and physically.
    Sometimes taking time out even when sick is the hardest thing to do.

      1. I’m doing good, thanks. Not in pain anymore. Just a little sore at the incision sites, and moving a little tenderly and slow. I follow up with the doctor who performed the surgery in a few days. Just so glad that bad gallbladder is out. God is good!

  2. Sunday’s are a day of rest for me, something I started about 3 months ago. I do absolutely nothing and I look forward to it! 🤗

    1. I agree. I was thinking about that this morning…..His time apart alone away from the crowds of people. He was communing with His Father, resting and being refreshed in Him, for when He gathered back with them.

      I cannot start my day without my quiet time alone with my God. There’s no other way to start the day.
      …stay rested my friend. 🙏😴
