Sabbath Rest Revelation
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!
