The Weekly Breather: Your Work is Done

Settle and Release

Find a comfortable spot. Take a few slow, deep breaths. Let your muscles relax. Open your heart to listen to the Holy Spirit. Do you notice any blocks popping up? Release them as an offering to God.

Encounter God in the Word

On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.
Genesis 2:2-3

Reflect: Feast on the Word

Which of your works has God completed? Give thanks for completed tasks and seasons. Check with your spirit: are you resting from what is completed? If not, release them to God’s rest.

Join with the Holy Spirit and bless the completed work.

Invite the Spirit to show you what is holy about rest.

Abide with the God who rests and gives rest.


Seal this time with a short prayer of thanks.


The vision of our team is to provide resources designed to encourage individuals in personal soul care and to equip them to care for others within the context of their own vocation, all from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective. We hope that this site is a means to connect resources with those who are in need of training and experience—including pastors, counselors or anyone caring for others.
