Why we need to rest

He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31

This wasn’t a request. It wasn’t even a suggestion. It was Jesus’ command.

Do you ever feel guilty for taking time away to recharge?

Doing God’s work is important, but even Jesus recognised that to do it effectively we need periodic rest and renewal. That is why God commanded a sabbath day because He intended for us to rest, as we do need unhurried time in worship and rest…each week.

That is how amazing He is to us.

Don’t feel guilty or allow others to make you feel so. And don’t neglect Gods provision for our lives!

By taking a day off to recoup in this fast-paced world demonstrates how important God actually is to us and by resting, we may just rediscover the joy we thought had been lost forever, simply by refreshing our souls.

Rebecca Brand

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
