Everyone gets tired and needs to rest. We need to rest our mind, our body and sometimes even our Spirit. Even the mighty lion needs to rest.
When our bodies are fatigued we can feel it. Sometimes we push and keep going but eventually we need to stop and rest so our body can restore itself. If we do not, it impacts our thinking and our bodies start to break down, which forces us to stop.
When our mind is overworked we stop thinking rationally and we begin to make mistakes, ones we may not even notice. Our head gets heavy, our eyes want to close because, again, our body starts to shut down.
When our Spirit is constantly attacked and we are fighting to ensure that we shine our light out into world, we can get weary. We need to rest and pray; prayers replenish the Spirit and nourish the soul.
Everyone gets tired, everyone needs a rest, no one is immune to fatigue. We must listen to our body, our thoughts and our Spirit and when they need it of us, we must rest.
Even now, while many are in self-isolation, we must recognize when we need that break and ensure that we rest. If you are weary of body, mind or Spirit take strength in knowing you are not alone, we all need to rest.
One thought on “We All Need to Rest”
So very true! I constantly struggle with this notion that it’s okay to rest, as silly as it may sound. I just have so many things I want to do and things I want to build for my life and I know it takes a lot of hard work so it feels wrong at times to stop and take a breath. But I am learning that it is okay and it always helps you come back stronger than before! Thanks for writing this! It’s so funny that I came by this post because I was having the exact same thoughts earlier today haha
