I go to a church called Worship Harvest which currently has 11 locations (follow the FB page for full details)
At Worship Harvest, June is month of rest otherwise known as rest month. It’s a month where we don’t meet for our Missional Communities, choir rehearsals and any other church meetings except Sunday garage.
I have fully utilized June as my month of rest.
I have had time away from my phone ,books (I intentionally didn’t read for two weeks when I was on leave.Instead I caught up on blogs and YouTube channels) and I have spent time with friends plus so many other things.
I finally visited a friend who started a business a while back. I had been promising to visit the site forever.
I have had time with myself, to think and plan for the coming months, assess my friendships, assess the people I allow to speak into my life as well as the people in whose lives I speak into.
I have had time to read up on ideas I had written down and know how to proceed with them. I have visited Fort Portal with friends, held good conversations. I have had extra hours of sleep.
I can confidently say I’m ready for the next half of the year.
With the hustle and bustle of our lives, we need to rest,pause and assess where we are at, oil ourselves for the next journey when fit and in good condition. Rest gives you an opportunity to do more of what is bringing you joy and happiness while cutting out what’s been breaking you, causing you stress and strain.
Have you had time to rest? How do you rest?
