This was one of those weeks were no matter how little I did or how much I could not seem to find the formula for rest. I was not particularly worried or stressed about anything that I can think of. Just never had a good nights sleep and never not once felt rested all week.

So what does rest look like? How can a person become refreshed and renewed?

Jesus said that God gave man the Sabbath, the day of rest as a gift. God knew we would get tired in our work and if we did not slow down and tune into a station other than work and life that our minds and bodies would break. He wanted us to focus on Him and how great His goodness is.

Today I hope to slow my pace, to thank God for you, to focus and be present in His beauty in this moment, and leave the concerns of tomorrow until the morn.
