God’s Love Washing Over Me

Sabbath.

If you are a child of God, you have heard the word Sabbath.  And yet, it seems it is a misunderstood discipline.

I have heard and seen way too many arguments about this term.  And somehow, the enemy has caused uproars in believers hearts over what is right and what is wrong.

I am on Day 75 in my journey of “100 Days To Brave,” and this is the word for my day.

Fortunately for me, I have a good understanding of the term “Sabbath.”

Sabbath Rest – allowing the Love of God to wash over you!

I have had to battle for my Sabbath.  Being in ministry, so many believe that a Christian’s work is never done.  You must keep going and you must do what everyone else thinks you need to be doing.

Brave people take a Sabbath.  Brave people learn how to say no to somethings.  Brave people need a Sabbath.

Sabbath is not intended to be stress related.  It is intended to be rest related.  Rest and Worship.

When I arise from a Sabbath moment – a couple of hours – or a full day of a rest related activity, I feel God’s love has washed over me.  It has been a time of refreshment.

I would encourage you today to start discovering what a Sabbath time looks like for you.

One of my most simple Sabbath times is simply going outside and sitting on the porch in my hammock chair and just rest.  I love hearing the birds singing.  Sometimes I will take out a book and read and fall asleep.  It may be 20 minutes.  It may be for a couple of hours.  But there is no technology involved!  Just pure rest.  And when I rise up from my chair – I have been washed in God’s love.

I know as a young mom, this seems impossible.  But I also know that it is possible.

As a parent, we can also teach our children how to rest.  It takes time, but it is possible.

Discover the discipline of rest – of Sabbath.  You will never regret that you sought after this rest.  Never.

My Song:  I pray these words bring peace to your heart today.  To know God’s Love at this level of Sabbath Rest is pure joy.  Rest in Him today.

Rest in You
