I’M LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF REST. If always on the go, I’m exhausted. I need some quiet time. My physical health depends on it. My emotional health depends on slowing down. To deal with the stress of life, I need a time of calm. My spiritual life depends on it. I can’t make it on my own but depend on my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
