The 6th Type of God-Given Rest: Visionary Rest

32: The 6th Type of God-Given Rest: Visionary Rest

Have you ever heard of visionary rest? Probably not, and that’s okay! 

If you’re just joining us over here on the podcast, we’ve been talking about the 7 types of rest God designed you to have, and this episode is all about number 6: visionary rest. If you haven’t listened to the other 5 episodes in this series so far, you can go back and catch those any time you want! 

Visionary rest is the type of rest that gives you room in your mind and schedule to dream, create, and wonder. It allows for the white space in your life to broaden, and let’s face it, couldn’t we all use a little more of that white space? This type of rest lets you focus on planting seeds and watching them bloom and allows you to be in the moment without the pressure to perform.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • How to give yourself room to dream
  • The importance of living in the moment 
  • Why you need visionary rest
  • How to allow more creativity into your thoughts 
  • The signs that you’re deprived of visionary rest 
  • How to build visionary rest into your life 

Sometimes you have to plan rest into your schedule. It’s too easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks that need to get done and forget to prioritize yourself. 

I hope you’re enjoying this series on rest. There’s one more episode after this one and then we’ve covered all 7 types of God-given rest, so don’t miss it!
