You Need Rest

Jill Briscoe

Are you teetering on the edge of burnout, feeling like you have nothing more to give? But instead of resting, do you power through and intensify your efforts with work, family, and growing in your faith—only to become even more exhausted?

Burnout will leave you physically, emotionally, and spiritually depleted, and sometimes it causes you to lose perspective on God—thinking He wants you to do more and more! Meanwhile, God is patiently waiting for you to run out of strength. Because He knows that what you really need is to rest in Him.

But what does that look like? How do you stop when there are endless demands on your time and opportunities to do good? How do you find rest in God’s refreshing and reassuring touch?

Pete and Jill Briscoe open Scripture in this series and share important teaching that even mature Christians struggle to grasp. They’ll show you how to rest so that instead of doing good things for God, He’s doing God-things through you!

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Rest Stops

    Jill Briscoe

    One of the best known passages in the Bible is Psalm 23. It describes the relationship between a shepherd and His flock, in which He guides them through pastures, hills and dark valleys. In every case, the sheep are content because the shepherd is there, offering protection and comfort. We are the sheep in this story! 

    Jill Briscoe teaches that no matter what is happening in our lives, good or bad, the only way we can find true contentment—and even joy—in every situation is by trusting in the Lord, our shepherd, who promises to never leave us. 

    Scripture:  Psalm 23

  2. 2. Martha — Busyness

    Jill Briscoe

    What does your daily schedule look like? Is it full of errands and events? Sometimes we become workaholics and worriers, filling our days with too many tasks and constant concerns about things we can’t control rather than taking time to focus on the most important thing of all.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe uses the example of Martha to show us instead how Jesus would want us to fill our time.

    Scripture:  Luke 10:38 - 10:42
