Are you tired or worn out yet? It’s one of the busiest seasons of the year, and the vast majority of people tend to overextend themselves during the holidays—overextend their energy, overextend their budget, and some even overextend their welcome (but that’s for a different post at another time). A phrase from a Christmas carol has been stuck in my head the past week: a weary world rejoices. I’ve felt a bit weary as of late, and I’m sure many others have also after the past two years we’ve endured. One thing I know, is that I don’t want to start 2022 the same way I’m finishing 2021, and I know that a healthier new year starts with rest. Read more for how to start the new year off right.
Life is busy, and we’ve got plenty to do for our families, our jobs, and our ministries. But if we’re not careful, burnout can ensue. In this episode, my guest, Patty Scott, and I talk about how to overcome overwhelm. Life is constantly shifting and it can be difficult to find God in the midst of the storm. It is important to find our footing and seek God even when we think we don’t have time.

It is easier for me to get caught up in the busyness of my day than to make time for rest. Rest requires courage. In today’s post, Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith shares about the value of rest in God. Take the quiz to find out what type of rest you’re missing.
Rest. We sometimes treat it as a weakness or a punishment. But, God granted us both time and the model of rest for our good. If you have ever felt worn out, weary, and longing for more, then this episode is the perfect show for you.
In this episode, Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, and I talk not just about the importance of rest, but also about the different types of rest (and some of them might surprise you).
“Rest.” It sounds simple enough, but when God calls us to rest, what does He mean? In Genesis, God modeled rest after His work was complete. In the gospels, Jesus drew away to rest. Over a period of several years, He taught me four lessons about finding rest in God.
