This past week was heavy. I did a poor job planning, and ended up spreading myself too thin. By the end of the week I was pretty drained and dry.
You didn’t have to convince me that I needed rest!! I was ready to collapse on the couch in a trembling, whining heap. If I go for too long without rest, things dont go well.
Things are no different with our spiritual lives. Samuel Ward says:
Just as you refresh your body with rest and recreation, so cheer up your soul. Let your soul have two or three walks each day up Mount Tabor, that is, in some retired place of meditation and prayer.
Daily 15, ……. bible life breeds life!
Are you regularly cheering up your soul through prayer and meditation in God’s word?
