Find Rest

Your day of rest,
did you miss it?

The Jews observe it on Saturdays.
Most pastors observe it on Mondays.
And, if you can't wait till Sunday, ... why not squeeze in a few moments of rest today?

Not just "sleep", but REST!

Grab a blanket, Bible, journal, and pen.

Find a quiet place,
quiet your heart.

Read a bit,
write a bit,
and listen.

"Be still and know that I am God."  Psalm 46:10

Be still.
Be silent.

Too busy?
What are your burdens?

On the day I wrote this and took the picture above, my pressing concerns were portfolios to finish, papers to edit, a mounting pile of laundry, preparing for a conference, a basement still needing to be cleaned, ...  but, it was Sunday, a day of rest for this household.  So, I set aside the cares and enjoyed the 4th commandment.

"Remember the Sabbath day; keep it holy."

(In every command, God offers a gift, only found when we keep it.)

If you missed it,
don't worry; it'll come around again.

There will always be distractions and things to do, but the Lord blesses those that choose to rest in Him.

Rediscover Sabbath, and you'll find rest.
