What’s in your heart?
Are you getting enough rest in your life? Ask yourself the following:
- Do I get sufficient physical rest? That includes finding the right balance of exercise and sleep, invigorating activity as well as restful, rejuvenating times.
- Do I enjoy enough emotional rest? Ministry is stressful and emotionally demanding. Do I plan enough down time, as well as time with family, friends, and colleagues who let me relax and be myself so I can recharge my emotional batteries?
- How about spiritual rest? Am I spiritually antsy, suffering from a kind of spiritual insomnia? Or am I able to “rest in God”? In my prayer life, do I turn to God for consolation and strength? Am I able to quiet down the 10,000 voices inside and hear the “still small voice” of God?
