Selāh

Rest.
Take a moment to stop.
Strategizing how you’re going to
Make things work,
Handling business,
Planning events,
Keeping your customers happy,
Putting yourself out there,
Curating that product,
Performing for the masses.
Rest,
The anti-24/7,
Just for a second,
Or maybe even a day to simply
Close your eyes
And just be.
Know that the Third Rock from the Sun
Won’t stop in it’s orbit
If you take some respite.
Sure, you may feel like you’ve had to work
Twice as hard
To get half as much,
But I assure you that there are a million things,
From the higher function of your brain cells
To the lucky breaks you’ve had nothing to do with,
That have been happening
And will continue to happen
Without you making it so.
Rest is a reminder that you’re not God.
That there will always be a Creator
Of whatever world you inhabit,
And it won’t be you.
Selāh.
Pause, and ponder on that.

And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.
-Genesis 2:2-3
