Rest is the antidote to stress. Rest is not inactivity, but a Holy Spirit directed activity. Rest is "abiding."
"Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:4-5.
Our 2019 calendar has been set with 22 weeks of retreats. Pray and plan your personal year now, pastor! This should be a priority for your life, your marriage and your ministry.
