Sunday Stillness – What is REST?


This has been on my mind for some time. What is REST? Last Wednesday I found out. I think it means to spend some quality time with God.

R – Restore

E – Everything

S – Sit

T – Tight

I had trouble doing this the past few weeks. On Wednesday,  I still had trouble but had the time to persevere – until I heard that quiet voice with some answers. I loved Oswald Chambers from August 5.

A Christian is one who trusts the wits and the wisdom of God, and not his own wits (Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, August 5)

If I am going to trust in His wits, then I have to be close to Him, listen to Him and follow His directions.


Are you trusting in your wits or God’s? REST in Him. (click to tweet)

  1. We all need to take your lead, Janis, and make time to rest–especially with the Lord. Our culture is so fast-paced that I think we need this more than ever! Thanks for the linkup, my friend!

  2. Oh boy, did I ever need to read that quote from Oswald Chambers! I’ve been leaning heavy on God’s wisdom as we make this big move/transition, but it’s all too easy to fall back into trying to reason things out on my own.

I love to connect with you.
