In episode 154,my friend Angela Westmoreland’s story presses us into an element of “rest” that is uncomfortable: what if our need for rest is so vital that God forces it? It sounds unfair and controlling; but what if “forced rest” can actually be a profound display of God’s love for us? This is what Angela discovered: when a foot injury led to a difficult period of forced rest, she realized the restoration God had in store was far beyond the physical. Like in Psalm 23, you may find God “makes you lie down” when you’d rather keep going, but perhaps the good Shepherd knows what we need.
How has the God used forced rest to restore you?
