I don’t hit the restart button on my laptop nearly as often as I should. There are just way too many tabs open and my laptop often slows down causing me to be frustrated and less efficient than I hope to be!
I was recently looking at this little RESTART button on my laptop, and I realised how essential this sometimes seemingly insignificant function is.

Restart or Crash!
I have learnt that the rebooting of a computer is usually necessary after it malfunctions and or crashes. Rebooting allows the computer to RESTART and get back to working normally.

How to Restart
I am learning that my RESTART is in the REST, and in this REST, I Attain Renewal for Transformation! My rest is in who I am in Jesus Christ and Who He is in me and for today, I rest my heart in knowing that I am His child.
God invites us into this rest to give us access to this transformational power! He teaches our hearts to be confident as we encounter the greatness of His faithfulness.
Great is his faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. ~ Lamentations 3:23 (nlt)
