I seem to have come down with a summer cold. So, even though Bonnie Gray posted her Day 12 (21 Days of Rest Blog Tour) post yesterday, I’m getting my related one out today. I’m keeping it short though, as I really do need my rest in order to feel better faster.
Bonnie shares in her post that we all pay the price when we put ourselves last … “we somehow feel like if we choose to take care of ourselves, we are rejecting God and our usefulness to Him.” Maybe, we’re also a little afraid to face what we may uncover in the quiet.
But when we make space for quiet and rest, we give ourselves the gift of rediscovering our dreams and bringing them with us on our journey to wholeness.
“We need spiritual whitespace to feed our dreams. …
Sometimes, it’s easy to give yourself away,
when you no longer carry any hope for the dreams you once held.
Sometimes it takes more faith to revisit dreams
that have stalled than asking for faith to forget about them.”
Uncover your story.
Take the journey of rest in Bonnie’s memoir-driven guidebook:
“Finding Spiritual Whitespace.”
This book is for you.
