Hebrews 4:9 - There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
What is it?
I've not felt rested in a long time. I've thought about how I can have a vacation, or at least a decent stay-cation. I'm not sure how to pull it off without missing church. Yes, hearing a good message is restful to the soul as it builds the spirit, but I have responsibilities at church that are anything but restful. I need to take a Friday right after work and get away until Sunday morning to rest. I need to be alone and not be on anyone else's schedule.
How do I rest without having to flee for the hills?
How do I stop feeling the stress of all that is going on long enough to rest?
Have I done enough in life to deserve some rest?
Waking up in the morning and feeling rested instead of tired would be nice.
I heard the phrase, "They'll be plenty of time to rest when we're dead." I don't want to wait that long.
