There is much in the world to disturb us. We can read and watch the news obsessively, can lose sleep focusing on the pain and sorrow. In fact, with a history of abuse, we may be drawn to distressing subjects.
But our souls, also, need rest. Rest and peace are necessary to our healing. The God who made us knows this. The Bible speaks of there being a time for all things (Eccl. 3: 1-8).
Our most profound rest is in Christ. He is our defense against the world.
“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matt. 11: 28).
