Hebrews 4:10

“for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.”

There is nothing wrong with resting. There are people out there who believe that if they rest it means the do not want to succeed while others believe it they rest it means they are lazy. This however isn’t true. Resting is an act that we all must take pride in participating in. What most of us do is work until our bodies crash from exhaustion. We need to realize that we are not machines, and God Himself wants rest for us. God in His infinite power and glory and might, rested on the seventh day after creation. As He rested He expects us to do the same. As you work tirelessly and effortlessly be sure to make time for yourself and your family. Make sure you are taking care of your mental and physical health. 

Take some time to reflect. Take some time off for your personal self care. Even it it means staying home for two days and relaxing your mind do it. Do not wait until you crash. Do not wait until your body completely gives up on you. Take your time and care for yourself. God wants that for you. Do not feel guilty about resting just know that He is always ready and His always arms are always open.
