What It Means When We Work Without Rest

Work without rest.

I saw these math equations today on a blog I started following recently.

Work – Rest = Trust in self.

Work + Rest = Trust in God.

If you’re interested, you can read the rest of the post here: Your Faith in Math by SammyA. I thought he pretty much nailed it.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Jesus Christ, Matthew 11:28-30

  1. Love the equations! What a great reminder that we are to put our trust in the Lord and take time to rest in Him so He can refresh us. Be blessed today and bless someone else!


    • Thanks for your comment Shelly. I like what you wrote about God refreshing us. I think it’s easy to miss the idea that our Father wants to refresh us, He wants us to rest. Of course it’s part of His plan. God’s best blessings on you.
