Rest.

To be honest, these days I'm not even sure I know what that word means anymore. I feel as though I do anything BUT rest. From the moment I wake to the moment I go to bed, there is always something to do... Even as I lay down to sleep I find myself not resting, but worrying about everything that I need to do the next day.

Still, the Bible tells us often to rest. 'Be Still', 'He will give you rest'... even God himself rested on that seventh day. So why is it still so hard to actually do it? Why do we struggle with the constant need to be going? Why do we have this idea that if we take the time to rest, we are being lazy?

The reality is- we NEED rest! We need time to spend with God, with our families. We need time to reflect and grow. We need time to breathe. If you are struggling to find rest, I am excited to share a new devotional that might just help, 'Find Rest: A Women's Devotional for Lasting Peace in a Busy Life '-



Are you worn out and overwhelmed by your never-ending to-do list? Multitasking. Taking care of family and friends. Driving car pool. Running errands. Filling out paperwork. Meeting deadlines at work. In today’s do-it-all world, women are busier and more tired than ever juggling the roles of mom, executive, volunteer, student, wife, friend, and everything in between. We’ve all been there – feeling frenzied and desperate as we try to keep it all together. Some days it feels like we’re managing everything well, but more often than not, it feels like everything is managing us. It is easy to become emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted. But it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to experience a life of peace and find rest for your soul – even with life’s demands.

First and foremost, can we just talk about the beauty of this book? The beautiful floral watercolors are carried throughout the book, coordinating beautifully with the rose gold page edges. Now, I'm a visual person which is perhaps why Bible journaling has offered such an appeal to me. Likewise, these illustrations have helped to draw me in and supported that idea of calmness, peace and rest as I flipped through the pages.



This devotional is a 60 day devotional created just for women and the busy lives we lead. Each devotion starts with a verse on the subject of rest (or relevant to it) and is about two pages of reading that perfectly combines biblical stories with more modern tales. At the end we are given some questions to reflect over what we have read and how it applies to us. There is also a small space to write notes or answer these questions as well--- though if you're like me and tend to get a little wordy, you might find separate notebook to be beneficial. Finally each day ends with a quote ranging from Christian writers to more mainstream voices.

I must admit I have not worked through all 60 days, but I am loving what I have read so far. I feel like in the busy-ness that seems to be the norm these days, we all need that little reminder to just stop and rest. This book is much needed for so many of us. Ready to take the time to rest? 'Find Rest' is available to purchase at your favorite Christian book retailers:
