« The Sap Will Rise | Main | Rest (2 of 5) - The Reason for Rest »

February 12, 2013



I'm just reading a book by Tony Horsfall - 'Working from a place of rest' that I've been using to prepare a seminar on this very topic. So I may well print off your blogs as very helpful resources.

I look around at the Mission community (and church) and see the majority of people struggle with getting this balance, and I wonder what drives 'us' to be so relentless in our work. I do think the issue of needing acceptance is a powerful motivator, and we look to others to give us that affirmation. Not to be working 'full out' seems to be seen as being lazy, especially when the demands never go away and there is a sense that if I don't do something then it becomes another's burden. So out of a feeling of responsibility or guilt we take on more than we can sustain.
Living from a different frame-work is so difficult... we may know the truth but we don't live from it. Also in my experience there are precious few role models to see this lived out!

Resting is really important because it has a way of rejuvenating our bodies after a long week of work or a hard session of work out. By resting also, the body is able to revitalize the mind and this consequently brings about calmness.

It's in fact very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I simply use web for that purpose, and obtain the most recent news.

Howdy! This post could not be written any better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he'll have a great read. I appreciate you for sharing!
