Rest is Underrated

I took a couple of days off, went to a mountain retreat, and planned to write thousands and thousands of words on my next novel.

No phone (when I turned it off). No chores or cooking or other life distractions. Just writing. Plain and simple work. Work. WORK.

Instead, I rested.

Did I berate myself?

A little. Between naps.

Did I fail?


Did I learn anything important?


Rest is underrated.

Rest is necessary.

Rest is a gift.

God did it. (Genesis 2:2-3)

Jesus gives it. (Matthew 11:28-29)

Refreshment follows it. (Psalm 62:1)

We are so production-oriented that we often miss out on this regenerative blessing.

I pray you will make time for rest this summer. Recharge your batteries. Renew your spirit.

Do what Jesus said:

“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” (Mark 6:31)
