1/2 “then god blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”
finding rest can be so complex in a world that places busyness and constant striving on a pedestal. striving to get somewhere. striving to be someone. striving to fit as much as possible into our days, to fulfil the lie that we need to do more, to be worth something. the truth is our worth is not dependant on anything we have done, or will do, but because of who made us and who loves us. rest in that.
while god moved in his exuberant creativity during the creation of the world he made a point to stop to celebrate at the end of each day to reflect on what he had done and made, his reflection was that it. was. good. at the end of the sixth day he looked at all he had done and called it very good. then he rested.
i can’t help but think if i could reflect with god each day on what i had done and was to hear him whisper to my heart that what i’ve done is good, then what more validation do i need in my life? what more do i need to feel accomplished?successful? that i matter? that what i’m doing is actually worth doing? what more could bring rest to my soul? 🌴🌊🌿🌼
if you made it down to here then thank you for listening to my wednesday wonderings haha 🤙
