Rest

Thank You for showing me that rest is not only for the sick.  Rest is also for those who are well that they may continue to be well.

Being gentle with yourself is not only for the weak, it is also for the strong that they may continue to be strong.

I don’t want to live my life on empty.  I simply can’t.  I have to keep on being filled.  It is not only the unhealthy that need filling up, but also the healthy so that they can remain being healthy.

Compassion for oneself is not just for the timid only, it is also for the courageous that they may continue being courageous.

Kindness is not only for the tired, but also for the brave that they may keep on being brave.

Being with people is not just for the lonely, but also for the fulfilled that they may be able to be alone, because they have people in their lives.

Having peace is not only necessary for the broken, but also for the whole that they may be able to remain whole

Being healed is not only for the survivors, but also those who thrive need continual healing that they may continue to thrive.

Comfort is not only necessary for the hurting, but also for fighters that they may be able to continue fighting.

Relief is not only desired by those suffering, but also for those who are confident that they may be able to keep on being confident.

Encouragement is not just for the beaten down, but also for the encouragers that they may continue being encouragers.

Care is not only needed by the injured, but also by the scarred that their scars may not reopen.

Binding up wounds is not only for the bleeding, but also for the recovering that they may continue to recover.

Being fed is not just for the starving, but also for the growing that they may be able to continue growing.

Resting – This is the doing and trying that enables your life.  Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
