God puts the “new” in “renew”

He restores my soul. Ps. 23:3 (ESV) He renews my strength. Ps. 23:3 (NLT)

God puts the “rest” in “restore” and the “new” in “renew.” God uses rest to give us fresh perspectives, changed attitudes, recharged energy, and clean slates for whatever (or whomever) we have to tackle next. Sometimes the most effective, most production action that a person can take is to rest.

Lord, restore my soul; renew my strength.
