Rest Day

We sometimes need rest, even from the work of spiritual disciplines.  Athletes know that to get stronger and faster we have to have a balance of effort and rest, but does not the same happen for the spiritual life?  Today, don’t try to do anything to achieve Christlikeness.  Don’t read your bible, spend special time in prayer, or do any meditation.  Instead, simply rest in God and let God to the work of recovering you to the self God intended.
