Karen continues to recover from her recent full knee-replacement. While it is difficult and still far too painful far too often, she is making progress day-by-day. Her physical therapist has told her that one of the most important things she can do to facilitate healing has nothing to do with physical therapy. It is to get a good night’s sleep. Of course, good sleep always has a lot to do with good attitude. But it’s also essential for physical healing. The same thing is true for your spiritual life. In fact, spiritual directors often cite a good night’s rest as one of the foundational spiritual disciplines people need to be more intentional about if they are serious about growing spiritually. But there’s also another kind of rest you need that is even more important if you desire to grow spiritually – resting in the Lord. Because that’s how you are healed, formed and set free to live God’s purpose for your life.
