Dear Sabbath Seekers,
How many times have you felt like you needed to take a break, but, because you had so much to do, you didn’t? How many times have you worked a long, hard week and there is still so much to do you know you won’t be taking a well needed rest? Or, if you did, you would feel guilty?
Yup, me too.
And here is what I have learned from keeping on when my brain and body are screaming for a rest.
I lose my creativity
I get stuck and can’t make progress
I have more head and muscle aches
I am less productive
I become easily irritated
I stop caring about what I am doing
To name a few…
Today is one of those days…so all I am going to say is I’m stopping for a rest…just like God commanded me! And if God commanded it, how can I feel guilty?
“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40.29
