Rest: anesis = to let up, relax, stop being stressed, find relief
Take Paul’s counsel to heart, and allow yourself a little relaxation and time for recreation---time away from your problems. When it’s time to come back and face those problems again, you’ll be refreshed and recharged with renewed vision. You’ll see that challenge with new eyes, and you’ll face it with new strength. If you don’t take a break from that constant stress, it will keep wearing you down until you become easy prey for the devil. So say goodbye to your problems today. Take a break, and allow yourself a little time to rest, relax, and recuperate!
And to you who are troubled rest with us. (2Thessalonians 1:7)
