Finding the Spirit of Sabbath in a Busy World
An Inspiring, Practical Guide to Finding Rest and Getting Closer to God
Are you tired of being tired?
Do you struggle with giving yourself permission to rest?
Feel guilty when you aren’t being productive?
Secretly dream about a sick day to lay at home and read all day?
Yeah, me too.
If busy has become your recurring answer when people ask, “How are you?” maybe it is time to pause and make rest realistic instead of miraculous.
In Rhythms of Rest, I dispel legalistic ideas about Sabbath, showing you how times of rest — whether for an hour, a morning, or a whole day — can change perspective about the way you approach life. With encouraging stories from people in different stages of life, you will glean simple ways to be intentional about making times of rest doable.
In order to extend compassion to others, we must first be compassionate to ourselves. When was the last time you chose rest for yourself?
You are unique and the way you rest is unique to you too. Sabbath is not about resting perfectly but resting in the One who is perfect.
