A to Z of Gratitude–Letter R


R stands for rest.

Every once in a while we need to rest from the busy days/weeks/months we might go through.

Rest is important for the body and for the soul.

Rest allows you to recharge your batteries, to relax, to take the time to smell the roses.

Psalm 23:2 says:

He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.

When was the last time you truly stopped whatever you were doing and rest a bit?   When was the last time you took a book and read?  Just do nothing…

I have a friend who is in bed rest for the next 6 weeks…  Actually she already pass one week or so in bed rest but have more weeks to do.   I pray she learns to listen to God during this time.  I know she will but I pray for peace as being confined in bed for such a long time must not be fun.

I hope you will take the time to rest on a daily basis.    I find it is essential for me so I can be less stressed about things.
