Why is it so hard for me to just rest?

Do I really believe that everything will fall apart if I stop moving?

Am I that important?

God rested on the 7th day of creation. He really is that important, and the universe, which He created and sustains, did not fall apart.

Last Friday we took a true day of rest--something we are working on doing every week. It took planning--I planned out our meals and our lack of visitors, did enough chores on Thursday to keep things running smoothly, and got into the mindset of rest. 

And it was wonderful. We played as a family, I enjoyed cooking a nice lunch and did not stress about the dishes. We were relaxed, and truly at the end of the day, I felt rested. 

So, since the world did not fall apart and I am indeed not that important, and since it is God's plan for my week, we will do it every week, Lord Willing.

Rest is one of those words that I use to think did not apply to me...I can remember many Wednesday nights the girls praying for me to get sleep. One of the things I love about Scott is he is continually teaching me how to rest!
