Sacred Strides: The Journey to Belovedness in Work and Rest.

Justin McRobert.

Soft cover, 224pp.
ISBN 9780785239901.
Thomas Nelson (2023).
[Allow 4 weeks]. 

In this fresh look at finding balance between work and sabbath rest, McRoberts leads readers on their journey from false self to true self, discovering that growth and maturity take root in the knowledge of their belovedness in Christ.

He says, "My natural posture is not work, nor is my natural posture rest. My natural posture is belovedness, and both work and rest spring from my belovedness, and return me to it."

He uses humorous and poignant stories to help readers discover the deep truths about us being laborers for/with Christ, empowered by the Spirit, as well as worshipers of God the Father.

Readers will learn how:

  • Sabbath is a gift and a practice that frees us from the anxiety of proving ourselves
  • They are loved and valued by God for who and whose they are—not for what they do
  • Rest is not the absence of work; it is what gives work meaning
  • We can love our world and the people in it through what we do

We are not tools in God's tool belt, valued only for our gifts and talents. Nor are we ascetics called to abandon "daily life" to find God in the desert and just sit there. We are beloved by the One who holds all things together… including our need to work and our need to rest.
