Rest, a place we stand, a position or posture that we choose to take on. Compare a tree planted by water giving shade for people with a prickly cactus that can hole 200 gallons of water for itself with no shade to offer. Jeremiah 17: 8; Isaiah 28: 12; Isaiah 30: 15. In the Old Testament Daniel, Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednego and Joseph. Rest is taking time to steady our hearts. Acts 27: 25; John 14: 27; Acts 16: 23-26. When we have unrest in mind, a strategic plan is necessary to keep going, keep praising and connecting with God.
Kindness is a growing thing; a Fruit of the Spirit. Titus 3: 4-7 Be kind to others. God is kind to you. This week thank, forgive and help.
