The Daily Word - REST - Saturday, November 27, 2010

As I surrender my cares to God, I enjoy a time of rest and renewal.

Day-to-day worries, and the belief that we need to do everything by ourselves, can interfere with the ability to rest and enjoy a good night's sleep. So instead of giving in to worry, I give in to God.

I keep in mind that in order to give the best of me, I must take care of myself. When I love and care for myself, I am able to experience the peace of mind and body that leads to a good night of rest and renewal, and a more joyful and productive life.

Spirit created a world of order, one that requires and encourages time for rest as well as action. From now on, every time I am tempted to give in to worry, I choose instead to release it to God and rest.

I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety. --Psalm 4:8
