Many people believe that rest is inactivity. They believe that rest is just doing nothing. The problem with this is that you can take a couple of days off and do nothing and feel just as tired at the end of them as you did at the beginning. Have you experienced this before? I have!
It is true that rest can include inactivity but rest is so much more than that! Rest is an expression of the soul. It is a heart attitude.
Sometimes rest can come through activity
We need to know that sometimes rest can come through activity. There are certain activities that actually replenish us. They help bring life to our soul.
Some examples of these types of activities may be:
- Spending time with our spouse and children.
- Positive hobbies.
- Connecting with healthy friends.
When we don’t include these types of activities into our times of rest we won’t experience rest to its fullest.
