There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. (Hebrews 4:9 – 11)
Rest for me implies the absence of striving and making things happen on my terms but a quiet trust in who God is and His faithful promises to me.
It does not mean that I will not put in effort or work at meeting goals but rather it’s taking a step back to look at my motivations.
Rest for me this year is about serving God and attempting to accomplish my purpose in life, use my gifts fully and serve Him in all areas of my life.
So REST, that is my word for the year and what I welcome you to also do this year. Rest in God.
