Someone once said, “Christianity is fundamentally convalescence.” That’s an interesting way to put it! We typically think of convalescence in the context of recovering from something. In addition to recovery, other ways to think of it include recuperating, reviving, restoring, rejuvenating, mending or improving. Regardless how you think of it, convalescence is a process. I think that another way of understanding Christianity as convalescence is to be still enough to recognize Him as our refuge (Psalm 46:10). That might be hard to do if you’re a Type A, go-getter type. Let go of striving and be still.
