121: Finding Sacred Rest + Sabbath When You’re Stuck in Overfunction with Deanna Mason
What does spiritual rest or sabbath rest look like, and how can we give ourselves permission to embrace God’s gift of rest, set boundaries around our schedules, and seek sabbath rest without any guilt, shame, or fear?Today on the podcast my friend Deanna Mason and I are talking about how to create a lifestyle of soul rest—this is the deep kind of sabbath rest that we’re all desperate for but feels just out of reach. Deanna shares about the different types of rest and why understand each of these types of rest can help us practice sabbath rest as defined in the Bible. Listen, as overfunctioners and high achievers, Deanna and I of have struggled with what it means to work hard as part of our godly calling and also make sabbath rest a priority, so if you struggle in this area, our stories today will encourage you that you’re not alone!
