Run Run Run, that’s all we do as moms. We are constantly on the go, taking the kids to school, running errands, going to play dates, getting groceries, taking children to activities. When do we stop, never. We go go go. Rest Living Simply in the Sabbath is helping me to remember to live for God and not myself. I need this reminder and in six aspects of the Sabbath I can work on ways to Stop Stop Stop.
By resting, reconnecting, revising, pausing, playing, and praying we can get back into living for God. I am in imperfect being, I am an imperfect mother and God still loves me. I don’t need to take an all out approach to get closer to go, he accepts our baby steps. I’m 28 years old and I think my relationship with God is still in it’s infancy. Rest reminds me that I can live with God every day if I just take the time.
