I know that may sound like a foreign concept to some, so let me explain.
You see, today, I choose not to work.
Today, I choose to rest, to sleep in, to sit on the couch, and to not check email.
Today, I choose to spend the entire day in my pajamas.
I choose to watch TV.
I choose to take a nap after lunch.
I choose to refuse to get caught up in, “I should be doing something.”
Today, I choose to rest, hopefully in Him.
You may scoff at this post and say, “Wow, wouldn’t it be nice to have that luxury.”
The truth is though, time off is not a luxury you have, as much as it’s a luxury you make.
In today’s fast, connected, 24/7 world, I find that it takes more discipline to rest than it does to work. But it is in the resting that we re-fuel, reflect, and re-ignite our passion for the work.
The car that goes as far and as fast as it can without stopping for an oil change may go pretty far in the short term. But the car that makes regular stops for check ups and re-fueling, that car could last you a lifetime
