T15 – REST

We have been learning about rest and work since before we got married, and we still have a lot to learn. Being in Taiwan has forced us to think about why we rest.

Every Monday for the past 52 weeks we’ve said no to outside engagements, but often our hearts and minds haven’t rested. Thanks to some great pastoral care, we have learned to look to Jesus more often, and less often to comfortable distractions. We are thankful for a God who not only gave us an example but also provided spiritual rest for us. That means that he doesn’t need our efforts, so we are free to rest.
