Still looking for rest in your Green Pasture? (See Where’s My Green Pasture Parts I & II) Meditate on our simplified list of “R”s so you can turn your search into a find!
Do these “R”s
1. Refrain from interacting with others, completing tasks, and the sound of noise for a period of time. You determine the length of time, but stillness, silence and solitudeare indispensable elements of the Green Pasture.
2. Retrain your brain. You are not in a race, you are in a marathon. Create your own pace for your life and erase the culture’s speed minimums of 100 mph.
3. Remain connected to the Shepherd. He will guide your pace in life and tell you when it’s time to get busy and when it’s time to rest.
These “R”s await you in The Green Pasture!
