Do you have a biblical understanding of rest? Download this FREE topical Bible reading plan and spend 21 days meditating on what it means to rest!
We live in a fast-paced society, and it is an ever-present battle to stop the hurry and flurry of life and just slow down.
To just rest.
Learning the rhythms of work and rest has been a near constant battle for me.
I’m a go-getter, big-picture, goal-setting, glass-all-the-way-full kind of gal.
But after my third child was born, I quickly realized that the pace I had been keeping wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
God began to work a deep conviction in me that rest was something I needed to seek His wisdom on, and in the quiet season of newborn-ville, I dipped my toes into the wonderful study of God’s word and what it has to say about rest…
And can I just tell you?
It has been the richest experience of my Christian walk yet.
Do you have a biblical understanding of rest?
Creating monthly Bible reading plans is such a privilege. I look forward to creating each new plan because I get to study the Scriptures first.
I get to read the Word and be reminded of who God is and what He’s done and what He’s going to do through His people as we seek Him.
When the word REST continued to come to mind for the month of April, I got so excited because this is a topic near and dear to my heart.
And as I contemplated how to compile this month’s Bible reading plan on rest, I kept thinking:
Rest is often something we give to God as our leftovers when in reality it’s a first fruit.
We must first rest in God, and we cannot rest in God apart from the work of Christ.
This is why the Sabbath rest is so special, so sacred.
If we aren’t resting in Him, if we aren’t abiding in Him, then nothing good comes from us.
For it is from THIS rest that we work.
That we give life to those around us.
I cannot wait for you to dive into this topical Bible reading plan on rest.
It’s only going to scratch the surface, but I know it will spark a desire in you to continue to develop your theology of rest and work.
I’ve compiled 21 verses that focus on who God is, what He has accomplished through Christ, and what He wants to do through you as you rest in Him.
You can read through this plan alone, or gather some friends to read with you.
Or better yet, maybe you can do what this family does who wrote to me:
“Right now our family is reading through one of your Bible reading plans (currently Self Control) individually and then talking about each passage together at breakfast. It’s been a sweet way to start our day.”
What a great idea!
However you want to use this plan, I hope that you will be blessed.

Why 21 Days?
Our Bible Reading Plans are just 21 days long.
This way you don’t have to worry about “getting behind” if you’re working through one Bible reading plan a month. You can work at your own pace and go deeper into each area of text if you desire.
Plus, there are no dates or days marked on the plans. This means you can skip around and read the passages in any order you like, at any time of year you like.
We are praying this Bible reading plan and journal companion will help you have a special place to record your thoughts as you quiet your heart and mind to read God’s Word and learn what Jesus meant when He said, “I tell you that something greater than the temple is here.”
