REST

 

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

Genesis 2:2-3

 
 

 

REST


Take a moment. 

Feel the pause 

between the too-fast pacing 

and slow. 

Hear the things 

learned only in still. 


There‚Äôs a kind of language 

reserved
for the quiet spaces
and a restoration 

lavished
on the souls 

brave enough to 

listen. 


The world whirls a 

thousand times
and we can whirl
our whole lives 

without even knowing 

we had a choice. 


The Sabbath invitation 

feels radical.
An opportunity to trade 

productivity for 

quiet communion. 


As a parent cradles a 

sleeping child,
Sabbath begs us
rest within the gentle hold 

of our Heavenly Father. 


Let all creation 

learn to breathe 

this new rhythm 

of rest, 

and find soul 

restoration in this 

rhythm that echoes 

eternity.
