You see, when college students "rest", it is to watch a movie or scroll through Facebook for 10 minutes.
Projects, quizzes, homework, and tests all pile up causing constant anxiety and stimulation-and the thought of peace and rest is the furthest thing from my mind.
Especially reading my Bible or taking a break to just sit in God's presence and listen?
That's unheard of...I don't have time. Really? God had time to rest when creating the world. I can't find 5 minutes to sit in His presence?
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. -Colossians 3:15 (NASB)
So, when you take a minute and let Christ rule your heart, you become:
- Part of His body (which he commands)
- Thankful for Him
- Joyful. Seriously, when does a break and sleep not rejuvenate you?
I challenge you, take a break from all of the stuff surrounding you, focus on God and give up your worries. He's got this.
