Most people try to take at least a few days off to relax during the summer. This may be either in the form of a vacation or “staycation” (vacation at home). Whatever method chosen, it is a time to rest our bodies, minds, and spirits to make sure we do not become overwhelmed.
In this Summer 2014 issue of Press On! Webzine, we’ve devoted articles that give tips on how to rest ourselves from the inside out. “Resting Our Bodies – Internal Cleansing,” describes the four types of fasts (three physical and one sexual) in the Bible. “Resting Our Minds – Me Time” discusses what we view as resting our minds in comparison to what it really is. Our spirits have to be stabilized to hear God’s voice clearly, and “Resting Our Spirits – Yielded Vessels” discusses how spending more time with Him can give us peace.
“Real Talk – A Temporary Makeover” is a candid article that reminds us that when we walk out of our homes, we represent more than ourselves. Historically, people haven’t been exposed to this much violence by way of television or the Internet. The article, “Are Angry Outbursts Becoming the Norm?” is about how television and the Internet may be making angry outbursts more acceptable. “My Testimony – Tribute to Maya Angelou” details when I heard her speak in person, and includes a poem that I dedicate in her memory.
