“How beautiful to do nothing, and then rest afterwards.”
– Spanish Proverb.
Lord, I’m bad at slowing down. I have difficulty hitting the pause button. My life is a moving target. Please teach me the true spirit of rest. Help my body unwind, my mind divest itself of concerns, and my heart settle into a place of “shalom.” Give me a chance to rest, unburdened, for a while. Amen.
