Rest...

Sleep is a wonderful gift. I love a good night's sleep because without rest I'm tired and dragging...and crabby. Our bodies need time to refresh. When Jesus came to earth, he put on a human body. He was 100% God and 100% man. During his ministry he spent his time teaching and healing. "When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them. Moreover, demons came out of many people...At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them." (Luke 4:40-42) Jesus lived a busy, draining  life, but he like us needed to stop and rest. So if you ever feel  you have superpowers and you don't need down time, you are wrong because even Jesus stopped. Are you worn-out? Are you overwhelmed? Plan time to rest and enjoy it!
