Is that how you feel? If you’re a driven person, especially a mom, this may be your battle cry. You’re probably the one who does the all the planning, organizing, and facilitating—everything! Maybe it’s family, church, work. You’re constantly “on” and feeling like you can’t take a break. A lot of moms, executives, and pastors feel this way. But Pastor Dave DeSelm says if you don’t take some time to rest, you’re going to be forced to. You’ll lose your smile, battle anger and depression, and relationships will suffer. DeSelm says if you don’t come apart for a while, you’ll come apart in a while. In other words, if you don’t take some time to rest, your body may force you to. It’s overload syndrome. Sabbath is designed to help.
