Who Needs Rest?

In place of our exhaustion and spiritual fatigue, God will give us rest. All He asks is that we come to Him…that we spend a while thinking about Him, meditating on Him, talking to Him, listening in silence, occupying ourselves with Him- totally and thoroughly lost in the hiding place of His presence.                                                                                                     -Charles R.
