Sabbath Rest Revelation

Ocean - Sabbath


 

We are newbies in the partaking of the Sabbath.

 

By far, the most difficult aspect of this is to just "be" for a period of 24 hours and not continue to plow through my to-do list.

 

Though it's hard to slow down, it is such a blessing to experience the peace and calm the Sabbath brings.

 

My children are very good at calling me out when I start getting too busy "doing" instead of "resting".

 

During one Sabbath, I was having a particularly difficult time relaxing.  I was NOT taking it easy.  My 12 year old saw this and literally told on me!  My husband, realizing that I wasn't going to rest until I was out of the house, quickly packed us up for the beach.

 

Once we arrived, I was able to relax and concentrate on the Lord and my family.   Watching the ocean crash upon the shore I realized that even the mighty waves rest in between crests.

 

Yes, ALL of creation rests!

 

And so must I.

 

It's God's plan and design!
