I personally believe that rest is very important. Working all week and then coming home to cook, clean the house, do laundry, etc can get very tiresome. Our bodies need a time to rest and relax. But not only do our bodies need to rest, so do our minds.
Sometimes I just can feel completely overwhelmed in my mind. It's flitting from here to there to everywhere, thinking about all kinds of things. Some thoughts are important and some are not. Some thoughts are worrisome and worry can flat just wear me out. I don't know about you, but sometimes I can get way more tired by my thoughts than I do by physical labor.
I guess that's why I am looking so forward to our vacation trip next month to the beach. There, I can unwind and I can rest my mind and know that there is nothing I need to worry about for a few weeks. The beach is one of the places that calm me most. I can't help but just think about God and His majesty when I watch the ocean. The beauty and the grandeur just amazes me. I find when I'm at the beach I spend a lot more time considering God and a lot less time worrying. My plans are to rest in Him.
