If you have been in ministry or in the workplace at all, I'm sure someone has told you to make sure you take time off and get some rest. We are so bad at listening to that though. God tells us to come to Him and He will give us rest. Rest is a Biblical principle that we like to ignore. However, even Jesus left the crowds at times to go be Himself on a mountain with God. When is the last time you did that?

At the beginning of each new year, we tend to start off with a sprint and get tired before January is over. God designed us to need and crave rest. What does true rest look like? If you're like me, your go-to response is that you don't have time to take a break. God is really challenging me this year to take time to rest with just Him and I. He gave me Psalm 23 to emphasize this is what rest should be like. If rest is difficult for you, pray Psalm 23 over your life. Find where God is leading you beside the still waters. Wait on Him. 
~Rev. Georgia Morrison, Springboard Director

The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me], I shall not want. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still and quiet waters. He refreshes and restores my soul (life); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the Lord.

Psalm 23
