Do you long to slow down, but struggle to create any margin for rest in your life? Anna Kettle, the author of Sand Between Your Toes, is on the show today sharing practical lifestyle tips to help you discover a slower, simpler, and more soulful life in your everyday life, as you enter into God’s rest.
“I believe you can live in God‘s rest every day in your ordinary life.”
“I hit a wall in my own life and realized I needed to prioritize rest.”
“Even Jesus would have a burst of activity and then would withdraw. If that’s what Jesus did, how much more do we need to?”
“There would still be crowds and more work to do but He still took the time to rest.”
“The small simple changes can be the most powerful.”
“This year so much has been cut back but surprisingly I don’t feel any more rested. There’s never a right time so we have to just figure out how to rest right where we are.
“It’s heart work first. It’s an inside job.”
“Come to Jesus and learn the unforced rhythms of grace.”
“Even though I wasn’t moving anymore and it was a physical rest I still needed mental and emotional rest. It was a pseudo-rest.”
“Sometimes no is the better answer because then you can focus on the things that you’re actually called to do.”
“When I’m feeling rushed or stressed, usually the first thing that goes is my connection with God or other people.”
“We have to learn to rest well if we want to live a life that’s honoring to God. You can’t give out of what you don’t have. You aren’t passing on love, you’re just passing on stress.”
