why do i fear rest?

i’ve been thinking about how hard i fight rest. i think it’s because resting requires nothing from me and it  forces me to relinquish any control that i foolishly believe i have.

i know that control is an illusion but it’s one that i hold on to with all of my strength because it leads me to falsely believe that i have the wisdom and power to protect and provide for me and my family.

plus, doing nothing means that nothing is getting done. or so i’m led to believe.

but today i am reminding myself that adam had absolutely no control and was doing nothing at all when he received the greatest gift of his life – eve.

let’s look at it this way – when we are resting then we are not getting in God’s way and he can give us his best.

and i want his best! don’t you?
