John Stroman [says]: "A life out-of-balance is like a tire out-of-balance on your car; both wear out quickly." Green pastures, still waters, and soul restoration go together. A life overbrimming and running over with plans, appointments, and anxieties is not a healthy life. Without rest, the heavy-laden lifestyle leads to mental and spiritual infertility...
Mozart was fond of saying, "I can tell a good musician by the way he plays the rests." Christians can't afford to ignore the "rests" and the "silences," for they are the very things that make us good musicians.
