31: The 5th Type of God-Given Rest: Spiritual Rest

What does spiritual rest mean to you? To me, spiritual rest is all about finding rest wherever you are. 

In this episode, I’m sharing a story about a physical place where I find spiritual rest, and how I bring that place with me wherever I go. After all, spiritual rest isn’t found in one specific place, it’s found within. 

This episode is all about the 5th of the 7 types of rest God designed us to have. If you’re just joining us in this series, don’t worry! You can listen to these 7 episodes in any order, so when you finish this one, go back and catch the last 4 covering physical, sensory, mental, and emotional rest. 

If you want to find out what spiritual rest is, how you can find rest wherever you are, and how this type of rest can heal you, then don’t miss this episode. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to find spiritual rest 
  • How I hold space for other people’s beliefs while still honoring my own 
  • The importance of meeting people where they are 
  • Why this type of rest isn’t defined by religion
  • The signs that you’re deprived of spiritual rest
  • How science and scripture can go hand in hand 
  • Why spiritual rest leads to healing 

I want you to create a personal sanctuary that you can take with you wherever you go. The secret to spiritual rest isn’t a physical place or even a religious practice, it’s about being able to go to your place of rest wherever you are.
