Best selling author Shaunti Feldhahn brings her research approach to the subject of rest and why it’s so hard for women who are more tired than ever in today’s do-it-all world.
It’s easy to become emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted, but it doesn’t have to be that way. It is possible to experience a life of peace and find rest for your soul – even with life’s demands.
Our days are made up of choices– micro decisions that add up to our minutes and hours. These choices reflect what is our strongest priority at any given time and they can point us to peace and rest or to stress and overwhelm.
Shaunti shares a few of her elements of rest including why it’s so important to connect with God each day.
“You have to connect with God. You can’t do life on your own. You’re just going to be stressed if you try that because you are taking on burdens you were never meant to carry. That’s why it’s so important to connect with God and ask him what he has for you today and plug into his strength.”
- Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29
- Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Philippians 4:8
