Life never slows down on its own. There is always one more deadline to make, one more commitment to honor, one more late night at the office, one more emergency to handle. With the concept of rest so attractive and yet seemingly unattainable, many people have grown disillusioned with what true rest for the soul could even resemble in their own lives. God's command on the topic is as simple in theory as it is difficult to practice: Rest. Be still. Yet the daily grind beckons, and so many believers continue life at a pace that leaves no time for godly, biblical rest.
Author Cheryl Wunderlich knows this story well. As a busy wife, mother, women's ministry leader, and professional, she didn't have time to slow down and consider rest until she was knocked flat on her back with a cancer diagnosis--not once, but three times. In the midst of her battle with cancer, she finally heard the still, small voice inviting her to find her hope and her rest in the Lord.
Sacred Rest comes from these trenches and invites you into God's truest definition of rest. By engaging with 100 devotions, interspersed with prayers, Scripture verses, and biblical examples of rest, come and learn God's original plans for rest, work, and a more balanced--more enjoyable--life.
