Non-fiction / 142 views / Popular
Today’s society screams a tune of busy, busy, busy. Stress levels peak, tensions mount, priorities press upon us. Abundant, fulfilling life in the kingdom of God often seems but a distant speck on the horizon of our daily lives. Yet that speck can immediately become your daily reality when you enter that which Jesus has kept for the people of God: a life of rest.
A resting life is a fulfilled life.
A resting life is a productive life.
A resting life is a peaceful life.
A resting life is free to love and be loved.
But just what is Biblical rest, and how can our modern life seamlessly unite with this rest?
In Resting Life: Jesus’ Rest for the Busy or Burdened Believer, Erika Mathews tackles this question and addresses the conjunction of rest with practical areas such as fruitfulness, prayer, meditation, spiritual warfare, ministry, witnessing, personal abiding, and relationships with others. Through understanding and embracing God’s rest, you too will be uplifted, challenged, encouraged, and freed to live life as He intended—within Him.
A inspirational Christian living book for all ages.
“I…was truly touched by the content. As someone with health issues and a schedule that can seem hectic at times, this book was exactly what I needed! Erika Mathews just has a way with words and with explaining things that can help you really grasp God’s desire for your life. It’s obvious that she’s very knowledgeable, but at the same time explains things in a way that’s easy to grasp and sticks with you. I highly recommend this book!” ~ Goodreads reviewer
