Seeking God doesn’t need to be a treasure hunt or grueling ordeal – it can be a simple as turning off our devices, dimming the lights, and soaking in the reality of who God is. Do you find yourself running to and fro like a chicken with its head cut off? Rest in God. Does your prayer life look like an encyclopedia list of demands? Rest in God.
Hopefully, you had some time to rest and relax during the holiday, although it can sometimes be more busy than not. Let’s take some time this year to make resting in God a natural part of our lives. Everyone needs rest or we will crash. This is true in our spiritual lives as well. God is waiting for you, spend some time resting in his Presence.
Different people find different things restful, be attentive to what works for you. Try putting 30min aside today to do one of the following:
a) Turn down the lights, turn off all devices, and put on some quiet instrumentals. Light a candle if you like. Sit in silent solitude in a quiet place you won’t be interrupted. If you find it difficult at times, repeat and meditate upon the phrase: “Yes, my soul, find rest in God.”
