Jesus says “Come unto me and I will give you rest.”
And we know this. Well, we think we know that we need rest. We need to come to HIm. Rest from the busyness of life, too many activities etc.
But what if your rest is not self imposed? Not rest to recooperate from surgery, or grief. But rest from inactivity, taken out of service. Not for anything you have done, like cause disrespect , or disobedient to authority, but just because things have changed within your ‘group’. Going from serving to basically nothing. How does one navigate that desert, when it wasnt one you wandered into on your own?
How do you not only accept but wholeheartedly embrace that time of rest. Fully believing that God still has you in the palm of His hands and He still has plans for you?
