    In this episode, Rebekah delves into the theology of rest, focusing on Matthew 11:28-30, where Jesus invites those who are weary and burdened to come to Him and find rest for their souls. First, let's learn what each of these words mean... Labor... and Heavy Laden, because they are distinctly different and their definitions hit deep! Then, let's grasp what Jesus means when He says His "yolk is easy" and His "burden is light."

    ⁠REBEKAH'S WEBSITE⁠

    In this episode, Rebekah discusses the difference
    between rest and laziness, as well as the surprising root causes of
    procrastination. Procrastination, which produces all kinds of unwanted feelings
    and results, doesn't seem to serve us at all. Yet nearly 90% of my listeners
    report that they procrastinate or avoid tasks often. Why is this, and does it
    actually "serve" us in some way?

    Get ready to be challenged to
    look at your schedule, to consider your limitations, and to work within the
    created order to live a more full and purposeful life.

    130. Valuing Rest in a World that Doesn't & Busting the Hustle Myth Once and For All

    GOING DEEPER TOOLKIT - $12.99

    In this episode, Rebekah discusses the importance of rest and challenges the hustle culture. She asks thought-provoking questions to gauge listeners' level of burnout and shares her own experience with burnout and anxiety. With an emphasis on the need to value rest in a culture that promotes busyness and overworking, she debunks the myth that more hours worked leads to increased productivity and highlights the negative effects of being "busy but good" all the time.

    Rebekah also addresses the root causes of busyness, such as cultural conditioning, low self-esteem, perfectionism, fear of missing out (FOMO), and a lack of awareness.

    In this episode, Rebekah Anne Perkins discusses how Jesus handled difficult people. She explores various scenarios where Jesus interacted with people who were trying to trap him, had evil intent, rejected him, had selfish ambition, and grumbled and complained. With a focus on the importance of responding with love, patience, humility, forgiveness, and wisdom when dealing with difficult people, she also highlights the need to seek alone time and build up reserves of love and compassion to handle these situations well.

    Key Quotes:

    "Pray now and ask God that in the moment he will help you to turn the conversation in a way that's not inflammatory to those people, but also in a way that shifts it away from what they're trying to do to you."

    "Be direct with difficult people, speaking the truth in love."

    "Give the person who hurt you a chance to explain and restore the relationship, if possible."

Truth

Rebekah has a heart for Christian women to live in the freedom found only in Jesus and communicates truth to that end to empower women to challenge the things they believe that stand in the way of that relationship and practical advice on how to lean wholeheartedly into the love of Jesus! Highly recommend.
