If you know me hardly at all you know that I go hard. And I don’t tend to stop.
The meaning of rest tends to escape me.
Dictionary.com defines it as relief or freedom, esp. from anything that wearies, troubles, or disturbs; a period or interval of inactivity, repose, solitude, or tranquillity: to go away for a rest.; mental or spiritual calm; tranquillity.
I like to go and go and go. This is not rest.
But inactivity… tranquility…
Its what the Lord intended.

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10

Take some time. Get some rest.
