The Rewards of Rest
June 21, 2010 by Gospel Today Mag

Rest rejuvenates, refreshes and reinvigorates. “Six days you shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest, that your ox and your donkey may rest, and the son of your female servant and the stranger may be refreshed. (Exodus 23:12). Rest allows you to reflect, reexamine and recompose your thoughts.

Rest encourages you to reconsider and reposition. “My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” The rest that Jesus offers is a promise that His spirit will do the “heavy lifting.” Rest reposi- tions your thoughts, actions and reactions in alignment with the way, will and word of God. That way, you are not frenzied and worried and always ripping and running—trying to “make things happen”—you do what you are called to do, and let God be God!

In today’s busy society, many pastors don’t have time for members, parents don’t have time for their own children, hus- bands and wives don’t have time for developing loving rela- tionships, and friends don’t have time for fellowship. We make promises to “call soon”, “come by” or “do lunch” but never seem to take the time. God didn’t call us to be busy; He called us to be fruitful. He also called us to engage in Godly relationships that bless each other.

A wise woman once told me that if I would spend inti- mate time with God at the beginning of each day, I would find that the rest of my day would be much more focused and productive. At the time, I was young and couldn’t figure out how “taking” time away from working could result in increased productivity; I later learned that Godly wisdom does not agree with the ways of the world.
Don’t miss the opportunity here!

Change your schedule and your life! “Enter in” to the Day of rest each week. If you do, you’ll approach the next week as the refreshed person that God meant for you to be. Return to the rest that will rejuvenate you from the inside out. It’s never too late to change!
Here are some practical guidelines for the “day” of rest:

Go to church and worship God. Acts 17:1-2, Heb 10:23-25
Study the word 2 Tim. 2:15
Engage in a time of extra prayer Acts 16:13
Refrain from doing business. Neh 13:15-22

God Bless You!

Anchored Life Church

Anchored Life has a new home. July 4, 2010 we will be meeting at The Grange Hall in Broomfield, Colorado 7901 West 120th Ave. 80020. We are excited about community and sharing life together. July the 4th will be my first Sunday back, I was away for two months due to a stroke and spending time in rehab. I am grateful for the grace and mercy of God. I am grateful for family and friends. I am grateful to be alive. I have a testimony, in reality we all have a testimony, however I grew up with the saying "we overcome by the words of our testimony". I am an overcomer and more than a conquerer. My faith did not fail me. God was silent, my faith was tested, and many prayers lifted me up. I was not able to pray, I cried a lot, God had mercy. I had no pluse, no heart beat, I fought my way out of darkness clawing and climbing out of a dark hole, reaching for the top. I made it God had mercy. God said He makes me to lie down he did not need my permission. He restores my soul and I know there is a God.
