Overview

I was restless. Stuck in a whirlwind of my own making. I thought somehow, some way, I could earn true rest through all my hard work and achievements.

I was wrong.

You can't work hard enough to find rest for your soul. You can't earn enough money for your worries to be gone. You can't just wish away the voices in your head. You can't pack your bags and run from all your problems. The only remedy for your restlessness is Jesus Christ. In this book, you will discover the beautiful truths of soul rest in Matthew 11:28-30 and how they changed my life forever.

Through our journey, we will expose the lies of our culture that rest and peace are found in prosperity, productivity, perfectionism, and pleasure. We will prayerfully listen as Jesus dismantles the lies that the world has told us about rest and gives us the remedy for our aching hearts.

Papers are flung everywhere: to-do lists, planners, business spreadsheets, three-ring binders, study notes, sermon notes, game and skit ideas for summer camp, and books that I'll never have the time to read...

"This is crazy!"

Check my phone for some temporary relief. Facebook. Twitter. Back to Facebook. No, I'm not old. I just hate Instagram...insert relevant eye-rolling emoji here. Scroll YouTube for ideas for this or that. Remember I have to send a text to someone. Grab the fancy new book on my shelf. Put it back with yet another eye roll and big sigh. Finish sending my text. Stare off into space. Glance back at all the papers on my desk.

Beat my head against the wall. No, I'm kidding, but I seriously contemplated it.

"Stop!"

I take a deep breath. Finally, about to break.. I admit, "I can't do it. I just cannot do everything that needs to be done." My stomach is aching, and my head feels like Serena and Venus Williams are playing tennis ball up there Is this really what my life is going to look like?

***

That was the beginning of my journey to soul rest. It was here that Jesus began to show me just how restless my heart had become--how consumed with fear my mind had been. Maybe you have been there. You are a child of the King, and yet you live as though something is missing. Well that something is not missing. In fact, that something--that Someone--sees you right where you are. He longs to have more of you. He hears your broken heart. He is speaking to you...

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matthew 11:28-30). Restless: Finding Rest in a Restless World is a year's worth of prayerful meditation and a study of Christ through Matthew 11:28-30. It is a discovering and rediscovering of rest in a very restless world.

This book is not a finding-yourself type quest for happiness. You will not have to dig that deep to understand it. So don't try to over complicate it. Soul rest is simple, as Christ intended it to be. 

So if you are longing for rest...aching to stop. This book is for you. Not because it will lead you to rest, but because it will lead you to Jesus Christ.
