Three Days Three Quotes Challenge: Day Two

Thank you, Lourie, for this fun idea!

The rules are:

  • Thank the nominator.
  • Post one quote each day for three consecutive days.
  • Tag three bloggers.

My next quote comes from an amazing devotional called Soul Rest: 7 Days to Renewal by Curtis Zackery that I had the privilege of going through with some of my extended family. (P.S. – It’s totally FREE!) Now I want to buy his book, Soul Rest: Reclaim Your Life. Return to Sabbath. (affiliate link). Guess I have another book to put on my Amazon wishlist!

Zachery has several quotes he uses in the devotional that are quite inspiring. It is hard to choose just one. You will have to check the rest out for yourself.

Busyness is an illness of spirit. – Eugene Peterson

I am learning that restlessness, even the famous hustle to success, can be detrimental to my health both physically and mentally. When people with fibromyalgia try to make up for the necessary rest they must take when their symptoms flare-up, it is called Fibromania.

Busyness can stem from a desire to control. An ability that is knocked out of the hands of those with fibromyalgia. In giving up busyness, I give up control. When I live a grace-paced life, my soul and body are at rest.
