Spirituality from Daily Word: “Rest” (Espiritualidad de la Palabra Diaria: “Descanso”)

Rest

I take time to rest.

Sometimes my worldly responsibilities and stress weigh heavily on my body and mind. I may feel the weight of the world on my shoulders or my mind may be bogged down with burdensome thoughts that dull my thinking and stifle my creativity.

Spending my energy that way is like praying for the things I don’t want to see happen. When I take steps to release the weight of my burdens, I find true rest.

I remember that rest is an essential aspect of self-care and not a luxury. I rest my body with deep, peaceful sleep. I rest my mind by reading inspirational writing. I rest my soul by entering the sanctuary of prayer and feeling my oneness with God. I breathe the breath of God, release all concerns, and deeply rest.

 

And I say, “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.”—Psalm 55:6

Descanso

Tomo tiempo para descansar.

A veces mis responsabilidades y el estrés que generan abaten mi cuerpo y mi mente. Puedo sentir el peso del mundo en mis hombros. Mi mente se siente agotada debido a pensamientos pesimistas y temerosos. Mi creatividad parece haberse esfumado. Malgastar mi energía de esa manera, es como orar por aquello que no quiero que suceda.

Al tomar tiempo para soltar mis cargas, descanso verdaderamente. Recuerdo que descansar es un aspecto esencial del cuidado propio, no es un lujo. Le ofrezco solaz a mi cuerpo mediante un sueño reparador. Aquieto mi mente leyendo material espiritual. Doy reposo a mi alma entrando en el santuario de la oración y apreciando mi unidad con Dios. Respiro el aliento divino, suelto toda preocupación y descanso.

 

¡Cómo quisiera tener alas de paloma! ¡Así podría volar, y descansaría!—Salmo 55:6

  1. If I was a dove I would really want to go and rest and fly to my freedom. Such a beautiful and lovely post, Amira.

    1. I think that we all do that when we sleep… we leave our bodies behind, and our souls fly like beautiful doves of light back to our “home” to re-charge and truly rest surrounded by love. ❤

    1. I took about 7 or 8 months…there is no problem at all taking breaks with the host, is your blog and you post as much or as little as you like. The stats decreased during the time I was off, because there were no new posts to read, but I have over 3,000 posts already so there is always something to read on a daily basis. So, go ahead dear friend, take a nice break, make a post to let people know that you are taking some time off, it’s always nice to keep them informed.
      Best wishes and happy summer! ❤ Amira
