This book will help. It won't be cure-all. But it is great start.
God wants His children to have rest, rest for our bodies, souls and minds. Rest from anxiety, etc., so at the heart is our rest in Christ.
From this, Kimmel proceeds to apply it to relationships, work, children, suffering, forgiveness, etc.
Fun read, but so relevant and applicable.
If you don't have time to read a book on this subject, then you need to TAKE the time! This title is well-worth the small investment of money and time required for the reading.
The book is around 230 pages, may be completed in a few sittings, has an excellent writing style, and contains such topics as:
1. Busyness often robs us of quality relationships.
2. Live your life within the boundaries of God's Word.
3. Viewed against the backdrop of eternity, people are more important than things.
4. Accepting suffering as part of life and serving others will help you better deal with suffering.
5. Disciplining your desires will lead to rest and peace.
6. When pursuing dreams, make sure you are pursuing legitimate goals and making sure we are making the most of where we are.
7. Being a good steward of your strengths will help you live securely in an insecure world.
8. Marriages will win the challenge of hurried living by facing the challenge head-on.
9. 2 main priorities of parents are: preparating children ready to live as independent adults and protecting them from unhealthy cultural pressures.
10. Courage, not success, is required to enjoy rest in our work. 4 work areas you need to apply courage in to enjoy rest.
I will often refer to the book for encouragement and as a reminder to live to please God and not our hurried, empty, and insecure world.
Pursuing success as a goal had left me disappointed, disillusioned, dissatisfied and disenfranchised. I had measured my significance by others' opinions, expectations and accomplishments. I was weary and worn out. Tim Kimmel's call to forgiveness, repentance and gratitude has brought renewal - and rest! Rest is not only a gift or a commandment, it is also a choice, based on an attitude of truth rooted in faith.
