Genesis 2: 2-3 "By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done."
Mothers, we need to rest. We act as though God wants us to work until we drop. After we have rested, because our bodies force us to, we are back to the crazy schedule as before.
If God willingly rested, why do we think we shouldn't?
Give yourself permission to rest through play. Take time for yourself. Let the laundry go. Do something fun with the kids. Start resting today.
"Dear God, please help me to rest today. Help me to recognize and seize the opportunities to play with my family and friends. Help me to ask for help when I need it and take time for myself. I know when I have rested, I am a better servant for you. Amen"
