I love nature,there is something calming and assuring in the way the trees flow with winds,whistling and sometimes clapping. The flow of waters on the rocky streams,or sometimes just flowing quietly and smoothly. But what I love most is to lie or sit on a well manicured, green land under the shade of a tree and just relax.
Whenever I do this I reflect on Psalms 23:2
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalms 23:2 KJV
The Lord is concerned with our rest. In the midst of the busyness around us, He encourages us to take rest and reflect. I believe rest is a part of life that cannot be skipped or ignored. No wonder from the Genesis of the world rest was introduced on the seventh day.
Take time to rest from your busy schedules
Take time to rest from your worries and cares
Take time to rest from your pursuits and passions
A restful bliss brings rejuvenating energy and strength to go on. You may not have a budget to go for vacation but do something restful and relaxing often.
There are times in life when I have not practiced this concept of rest in life. Needless to say the results of continued work with no rest is a burnout and a rollercoaster of emotions that affect everything and everyone around me.
Enjoy some restful bliss moments and let me know how it turns out.
