Created to Rest

Entering the Lord’s Rest Amidst Life’s Journey


We are told that the Israelites couldn’t enter into their rest in the Old Testament the first time that they went to go into the promised land. Yet Jesus invites us to enter His rest.  What does that mean for us in our day?  And how is it even possible for us to enter into it in our work oriented society? I believe it is possible and even more so we are created for this very thing.
In Created to Rest, I go into detail explaining how we are created for rest. Also, what rest means and how it is different for those who follow after Christ to experience rest.  He invites us to join Him in His rest, giving us a number of benefits from it.  We will also learn how to have it and then how to maintain the rest of the Lord.

  • In a world full of conflict and hate, with the enemy's activities increasing daily, Created to Rest brings a refreshing encouragement to the weary Believer. Like Lot, the debauchery around us is a burden that clouds our minds at times. We forget that there is a place reserved for us, where the peace of God will forever surround us and our struggles will cease. The author of this book brings us into the rest of our Lord, giving us a brief escape from the cares of this world. This is a book well worth the time it takes to read it.

  • I have known Elizabeth Zacharias and her husband, Dan, for over 20 years. I recently had the opportunity to read her new book, Created to Rest. It was an easy read, which made it easy for me to engage. It was the perfect blend of facts, scripture references, and relatable stories. I walked away wishing I could have known Aunt Jenny, and challenged to revisit the invitation to enter the Rest of the Lord. In one word Refreshing! - Missionary with Global Impact Relief

  • We live in a day and age where the concept of rest is misunderstood. While we all want rest, we don’t have any idea how to truly find it on our own. This book offers a solid Biblical basis for understanding the true rest offered to us through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Scripture references throughout the book make it a valuable resource for the reader who is seeking truth that is a foundation for life. The author shares from her own personal journey of learning to rest and provides encouragement for the rest-seeker. We all have a longing for peace and rest in our lives, this book points to the ONLY TRUE SOURCE of rest, a personal relationship with the Creator of the Universe!

    I highly recommend this book to the tired, the restless, the seeker. I recommend it to the burned out, lonely, worn and weary one longing for answers. It’s easy and quick to read, and it will leave a lasting impact on your life!

In the Cleft of the Rock

In Exodus 33, Moses could not see the full extent of God’s glory because God said that Moses would die if he did. So God protected him, letting Moses see the backside of God. The cleft speaks of God’s protection. Just like the iris was protected from the elements of the often storm-ravaged coast of Maine. It was also a promise to Moses as Moses didn’t want to go farther with God unless the presence of God went with him and the Israelites.

Maine people persevere in the midst of harsh winters and short growing seasons. To survive, they used their perserverance and resourcefulness. I am proud to call myself a “Mainer.”  I see the qualites noted in Maine people in myself. Knowing your roots often tells you a lot about yourself. It leads to you feeling more secure about yourself like a plant deeply rooted in the soil. The plant can stand its ground during a storm. It can hold its head up high when the wind blows or the rain comes. I pray for that in my life.

There was something I also did right before and during the storm which impacted me the most. I got my boom box and worship tapes out. I decided that I was going to ride out the storm by worshipping God. It was then that I coined the phrase, “worship is my warship.”
