Teen Talks That Matter – Rest
Teen Talks That Matter
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. God created all that we have, all that we see, and everything that we are. After creation he he took the time to rest. He sat back and looked at all he created and saw that it was good.
As you get older, life will get busier and busier, I can promise you that. Right now you have a few responsibilities like, high school, extracurricular activities, maybe even a part time job. As you get older more and more responsibilities will fall into your lap. One day you may even have a full time job and a family of your own to take care of.
You need to start now, if you haven’t already, to take time out to rest in God. Take the time out of your day when there are no distractions in the way and you can focus solely on your relationship with the Creator. Your day to rest in the Lord is normally on the Sabbath. This will give you an opportunity to take a break from the pressure of everyday life. By taking a day out of every week your saying, “Lord, I trust you to maintain control while I spend this day to focus on Him. Regardless of how much remains on my to-do list, today Lord I am going to rest my mind and body in your presence.”
I can assure you that this will not be that easy. There will be so many things that will distract you and take you away from spending the day with God. However, when we take this time and give it to God, we will find out that it is easier to put our lives into perspective. Remember, that if the author and the creator took a day off and told us to do the same, it is safe to say that it is advice worth listening to and applying to our lives.
Until Next Time,
