cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength.
Jesus says come to me all who are weary, and heavy laden, and I will give you rest for your souls. What does rest look like to you? For me I imagine the place of rest as a secluded beach somewhere sunny, with one slow moving wave that creeps across the sand...yet even if I was in that place of relaxation, I don't think I would necessarily be at rest, nope I'd be planning various activities to ensure that I made the most out of my allotted time...and I don't believe that a dream vacation is what Jesus had in mind, no His heart is for us to enter His rest and remain in His rest. This life can often feel like a perpetual treadmill set to the highest speed, but Jesus' invitation remains: rest.
