We as human BEINGS, we are called to embrace our God given limits. God is God, we are not. We are HIS. Rest and be thankful that’s the case. Therefore, the weight of the world DOESN’T have to be on your shoulders.
Resting is such a powerful facet of our relationship with Jesus because it is not dependent upon our readiness. One theologian put it like this, “Resting dissolves the artificial urgency of our days, because it liberates us from the need to be finished. We rest because (God) is the one who takes care of the universe. While our efforts are important, they are not (nor are we) indispensable. The galaxy will somehow manage without us for this hour, this day, and so we are invited- no, commanded- to enjoy our relative unimportance, our humble place at the table in a very large world.”
If you’ve said this: “I just don’t have time to rest,” then chances are good you’re moving too fast in life, and there’s no way to be thankful when your hair is on fire… In fact, your life is probably filled with unnecessary anguish.
