Well, this is me often enough. Some people think I rest too much but I'll be the judge of that. Our bodies require rest whether we give it or not. I know the last year I worked, my body kept telling me ''that's all I can do, rest!'' I used up more sick leave than ever just because I was pushing myself too hard and ended up sick.
Gatorade now even has a sports drink called Recover. They recognize the fact that your body needs to be restored after pushing it in strenuous activity. Nothing runs without being recharged, not even a battery.
Even though we've come up with a lighted way to work around the darkness of night, I think nightime is God's way of directing us to rest. He also declared the Sabbath as a day to rest. He who is all powerful, even rested. Genesis 2:3 ''Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.''
All I can say is 'Rest is best and I do not say that in jest.'
