Understanding How Important Rest Is In Living Out Our Purpose – Part 1

June 22, 2021

Saundra Dalton Smith Your Spiritual Game Plan

Do you ever find yourself wanting to get it all done, but you’re completely depleted – emotionally as well as physically?

You enjoy the work, but it can also quickly drain you. It is too easy for us to find our worth in the work we do and forget that rest is also necessary. It can seem like weakness to say that we need rest.

This episode, I will be talking with Dr. Saundra Dalton Smith about her own understanding of rest and why it is so sacred.

Dr. Saundra Shares:

  1. Her personal story of when she was completely burnt out, telling God she couldn’t do it anymore and was just DONE.
  2. How God rearranged her theology of what peace looks like.
  3. That she needed to re-evaluate what a good life looks like and feels like.

Our rest is under attack, we need a Spiritual Game Plan to carve out time for Sacred Rest!
