UL Podcast #269: The Counterfeits of True Rest

podcast rest time with god Nov 06, 2023

They say that authors often write books that they themselves need. That has certainly been true when it comes to what I’ve written about Jesus’s rhythms of work and rest. I have a deep-seated efficiency and productivity engine inside me. 


While this has often served me well in my work, it has also gotten in the way when it comes to entering into God’s gift of rest for me. It still feels like a discipline to stop producing and to simply embrace rest. When I do, I experience the grace and kindness of God. But it’s still often a challenge.


Today I am talking about the counterfeits of true rest when it comes to our work and our relationship with God.
