Why we need rest for our body and soul.
Host Rev. Percy McCray sat down with podcast host, seminar facilitator and public speaker Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith, a board-certified physician, who was at the National Religious Broadcasters Conference to discuss the importance of finding “sacred rest.”
Dr. Smith, who has written three books, including a compelling writing entitled Sacred Rest, provides insights from a clinical perspective regarding the importance of proper rest and the potential negative clinical impact of ignoring the mental, emotional, spiritual and potential physical ramifications of not being intentional about getting proper rest.
This outstanding physician, who is also a woman of strong faith, tells listeners what compelled her to embrace this life-altering school of thought after realizing she needed to apply some adjustments to her own personal life. At the time, Dr. Smith was working long, hard hours in her medical practice and coming home feeling exhausted and unable to manage all the blessings that she had experienced from her career and family.
“I burned out,” she says. “And got to a place and said to myself, ‘God, you see me trying to do all this stuff for you. I’m too tired to do it.’”
Listen now to this compelling health care professional’s personal insight and clinical research who outlines specific types of rest everyone needs to experience to be healthy and whole.
- “[My personal exhaustion] took me on a journey of really looking at what does it mean to rest because you know, most of us, when we think about rest, we just think about sleeping.”
- “At the very core of rest and the biblical concept of rest, is that rest is about restoration.”
- “I spent such a long time battling with God, I had such a hard time with rest.”
