Each week I come to this time, to finally just rest. The craziness and hectic schedule of the week, finally comes to a stop. I take this time to unplug from having to buy and or sell. The chores finally take a rest. I use what food I have that’s left to make easy meals.
My writing is spiritual. I can give my God thanks and praise Him, for getting me through another week. I get to refuel.
This afternoon as I finished my days work, I was making one last call. What happened next was I fell asleep in my office chair it was 3:30 or 4:00 pm then. The next thing I knew, it was at least four hours later. To me this was like God just allowing me a nap from the hard days work.
Apparently, I had no need to prepare anything in advance for this sacred time. When I finally woke up from my nap I looked outside and saw it was raining. Though I am sure its cold outside, it just assures me of no need to go outside to do anything.
Any of the worries work related can just roll off my back. I get to focus on this sacred time. I get to acknowledge My Creator, The Creator of this World, has provided for all my needs. I just need my time with Him.
Its time to meditate on the good and positive things of this week. To realize I am not the Center of the Universe. I get to let go of anything unpleasant and ask God for wisdom. It is still tempting to worry about things. However , this is my chance to let God truly have all of me. I get to be fully present, in His Presence.
In His Presence, is where I can truly change and hold on to everything good. I bring to Him every prayer request. I can submit to him every part of my human brokenness and know He will hear me. It’s in Him I can have my being. It’s in Him I can experience peace It’s in Him I can truly accept His Grace and Mercy.
I truly believe He never intended for this world to become the rat race it has become.
It has taken me a long time, to truly honor the Sabbath He has given to me. When I am running at full throttle level through out the week, it takes so much out of me.
I get sick from not taking breaks and not taking rest, when it is needed. It is so important I take this time to recharge. I have jokingly said it’s for other people. Really, it’s for me I need this to be able to perform better. I need the rest that I may learn more.
I need this rest so that I can give more and pour my all into whatever I am doing so that I might be able to honor Him more,rightly. Thank You God for the Sabbath.
Thanks for reading!
