Rest for Sabbath not Rescue
Booking an Airbnb for myself for the first time, and for no reason other than to rest was a weird thing to be sure. I have been taught as I am willing to bet so have you that rest is a reward only of painstaking work and shortly lived. However as a Jesus following Christian this is not what we are taught. In fact within the 10 commandments there we find Keep the Sabbath. Most of us can agree that yes we should not murder but why do we struggle to rest when they are both stated as commandment NOT suggestions.
I was wrestling with not having space in my life, a regular occurrence. How can I process the visions and dreams Gods given me when my calendar has writing in every square inch of my to-do's. God's Spirit nudged me to look on Airbnb for the heck of it. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for but I knew I couldn't enter my crazy season aka traveling season without getting some r e s t.
So I am kicking off my travels with my first ever solo trip to Sonora a mountain town in Northern CA. I looking forward to resting, being bored, and prayer.
