Rest has a reason. Rest is not just some chill time so we can relax... it's a time of replenishment and refueling so that have energy and hope to share with others. We're not here for just ourselves. We are here to be a blessing to others. Let's talk about it on today's Morning Manna.

Since the fall of man, people have had trouble staying focused, but we live today in an age of unprecedented distraction. Since you’re already reading or listening to this on some electronic device, I don’t need to elaborate. It is so easy to get distracted by lesser things and miss on the rest that God has for us.

I have enjoyed hiking sections of the Appalachian Trail. To keep you track, there are these white blaze markers along the way. It's easy to get lost in the woods and these markers keep you on track. I think that the discipline of journaling can help us stay on our path to Rest. Each marker is a milestone of what God is teaching us. https://www.bible.com/en-GB/reading-plans/16169/together/22077409/invitation?source=share&token=xR6qG9f1FfQkKdpH8Zd9OQ&fbclid=IwAR3Fv4uC4JFfOwXb5jHZ0FjsJF5DTWAlzgyUervRhh9xOdXQSyJBbE8hrOM

The Bible mentions meditation over twenty times and calls us to meditate on God’s Word. This is a beneficial practice to incorporate into our daily time with God as it provides a mental and emotional rest for us as well as spiritual growth. As we read week two of our Bible plan, "Making Time to Rest," I want us to dig deep and fearless into this powerful spiritual discipline. In the business of today's world it will indeed be challenging. But in the end, it will bring blessing, peace and the rest we need and seek. https://www.bible.com/en-GB/reading-plans/16169/together/22077409/invitation?source=share&token=xR6qG9f1FfQkKdpH8Zd9OQ&fbclid=IwAR1L5u7fYh8S62DE2Kdf_DVRaxfaC3k6qmW1WVEuzY69p7Ia1A_2T9RzhuM

Selah. This beautiful, thoughtful word appears in the Bible primarily in the book of Psalms. But what does it mean, and why is it there? In today's episode I share a personal story from my life yesterday and importance of taking a pause in our busy lives from time to time... to enjoy the journey rather than conquer the trip.
