How to Align to Your “Rest/Work Design”

Updated: Nov 15, 2019

Ever feel like you must meet every need that comes across your day? 

Ever feel like you’ll never get enough rest? 


I do. 


Then I remember this...Rest is not for rest sake. 


We rest, not because we will never “work/give” again, but because we will work again, will give again, will... 


Truth nugget:

From The very beginning of time, God has deliberately designed us for ongoing, well-maintained, intentional rest to BE a part of our lives. 

Remember? 


Genesis 2:2-3 (NIV)

2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from all his work. 3And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating that He had done.


God deliberately placed The Sabbath into the rhythms of life! And this ”rest” was first implemented by God Himself!

God needs rest?!?

No, not for “rest-sake,” but for His sake. He designed “rest” to reflect His character of Perfect, Holistic Love!

Psalms 127:2 (MSG)

It's useless to rise early and go to bed late,

and work your worried fingers to the bone.

Don't you know He enjoys

giving rest to those He loves?

Hint:

Rest isn’t so much about US than it is about our Designer!

He mandated it, even for Himself! Not because He needed reviving, but because He is a holistic God. 


Both our Being and our Doing are to reflect the whole of our God-given design! 


So when you and I are tempted to think we can “store up” rest for weeks or months of doing, we are literally “out of our minds!” 


That simply is NOT the reality of God’s design. 


He has gifted us with the rhythm of rest so we can incorporate the God-centered rhythm of giving. 


Both are GOD-ly. 

Both are part of God’s design for our lives. 


One is not more godly than the other; however, one without the other is UNgodly. 


So, my probe today for all of us is...


How would we describe our present rhythm of rest and work? 

What might that description be telling us? 

How would our gracious God and Designer speak tenderly into our present “description?” 

How will we go from here? 


Let’s not only evaluate our buckets, but also take reverent caution as to how often we are aligning ourselves to His design. Amen. 


P.S. If more of this heart-reflection, forward-moving, life-step action is your desire, I invite you to prayerfully consider gifting yourself by investing in a personal series of intentional Christian Life-coaching sessions with me. 

Interested? 

Then I invite you to schedule your FREE coaching call with me to see if this is a “next-step” for you.
