the importance of rest by jennynotjen

This week, I was off from school because of reading week. During this time, I’ve learned that rest is a God-given gift.

I tried to organize my time as best as possible with week I was given, but still, I didn’t achieve everything I wanted to. I of course put priority on my rather floundering social life, which was really satisfying, but also, tiring.

So guess what? I got a cold. I could blame my sister for getting me sick (she’s sick because she was walking around outside without a jacket), but I didn’t really spend much time with her. So I really have no clue as to how I got ill.

But with being sick comes the need to rest. And this is when I realized that God gave us one body. One chance at living life with God’s purpose in mind, which can be done best if we are physically and mentally able. With the incessant tiredness that comes with being sick, came the realization that I need to stop freaking about all the things that need to be done and just focus on the basics. After all, God provides.

Really, He does. I was accepted to one of the schools I’ve applied for, and am still waiting on the others. But still, I know that God has a plan for me, and that I won’t feel completely stranded once I graduate.

All this, and all I’ve been doing is sleeping and playing Rockband. Thank God (literally).

YAY~ WOW how come you didn’t tell me this morning that you’ve got in! 😀 Congrats! 😀 😀

I agree with Jimin 100%.
Before I’ve got into this accident, I’ve never realized how important to take care our body.
I think I’ve never gave much of creadit(?) to my healthy body. Even simple task like wearing socks is so hard for me these days and sitting down hurts, so when I’m studying, I can’t really focus-even thought I didn’t do much this week. 😛
Anyhow, here is verse to share;
“if one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it”
Like how when my back hurts, my whole body suffers, if one of our member suffers, we all suffer and we pray as one body! Isn’t it amazing? So i know now that when I’m in suffer, Sangji will suffer as well b/c we are one body. And when Daeshin is honour, I’ll happy as a one body. So, do you guys feel my back pain now? 🙂
