Have you ever wondered if God is real?
To some “good church-going Christians,” the thought of even asking that question may send them into a panic.
But while we may never verbally express this type of doubt, sometimes the way we live our lives is evidence of our struggle in this faith journey.
I’ll share an example from my own life this week.
I’ve been blessed to be a part of a ladies Bible study at a local church and we’re currently using Priscilla Shirer’s video series and journal, Breathe, to dig deeply into the concept of the Sabbath rest.
Some of us are so busy going from one thing to the next each day that the idea of rest seems impossible. Others of us can’t let go of the perfectionistic tendencies and our desperate desire to have things just so.
I was convicted that my lack of willingness to stop and rest is evidence of my lack of trust in God.
While I might be concerned about ALL. THE. THINGS. around the house, with Chuck and the kids, responsibilities at work, paying off debt, selling our house, plans for the future, etc., what I’m truly revealing is my lack of faith that He will redeem that “lost time” for those of us who have a production mindset.
What about you? Do you also struggle with trying to control your time or do you remember to have a mindset of rest?
What tips do you have for remembering to take time to rest your mind, your body, and your soul?
