When You Simply Need Rest {Contributor Post for Satisfaction Through Christ}

This week is holding a lot of excitement for my short blogging and writing venture!

Today marks the beginning of my second monthly contributor position for online women’s ministries. This one is for Satisfaction Through Christ, founded by the fabulous Christie Hill. She has put an amazing amount of time and effort into this ministry. She holds on to the promise that many women will be encouraged by peeking into the lives of other women who share their thoughts, struggles and successes.

I am blessed to be getting to know the contributing authors of Satisfaction Through Christ and I’m sure you will too. We have some solidly grounded in Christ kind of women over there!

And now, here is my first contribution to this budding ministry….


When You Simply Need Rest


Rest almost seems like a foreign practice today.

When we get seen enjoying the quietness of a still evening or the splendor of nature, we almost feel guilty.

When we get caught sitting for a moment, we become apologetic. Shame on us- we might wear the couch out!

We are tired.

We are weary.

We need rest.

We don’t need excuses to rest.

We just need rest.

    Thank goodness your math equations for commenting aren’t too hard!!
    I want to add your post to my monthly round-up of favourite posts…OK?
    I took this past long weekend (in BC, Canada) to REST and focus on scripture and prepping for my retreat. It was delightful!

      So glad you experienced so wonderful rest! Thank you for sharing this in your monthly round-up! What a wonderful practice! Maybe I’ll shadow your idea one of these days. 🙂 Thank you for reading, Aimee. I appreciate you!

    So very true! I find myself feeling guilty for resting if everything is not in order, and everything is NEVER in order. Thank you for this reminder. It is a blessing to our health as well as a spiritual blessing. And there is nothing like a Sunday nap… Thank you for sharing at the Art of Home-Making Mondays! I also left a comment on the hosting blog for this article 🙂

    I am struggling with rest right now, and leaning hard to the Lord for strength. I find that when I am depleted, I am unable to fully do my life, and I am actually more behind than if I had rested to begin with. Thanks for these words of wisdom, my friend! You’re being featured this week at the Sat. Soiree this week!
