Hard · Peace · Sabbath · Surrender

Shabbat Shalom…

Feeling the burden of all He calls me to…
plus things I want to do…

In the midst… He calls me to lay it all down…

A call to Sabbath…
24 hours… beginning tomorrow…
sunrise to sunrise…

No Fitbit…
no writing…
no prep for ministry…
no work…

I feel like I’m being sent to time-out…
forced… like a toddler… to take a nap…

The immature Believer in me says…
I don’t have time for a Sabbath…
I don’t have time to rest…

He says… Trust Me…

Unbelief is tiresome…

I feel like crying…

surrendering to the call…

Shabbat Shalom…

Sabbath Peace…

Hah…!

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days you shall labor, and do all your work,
but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God.
Exodus 20:8-10 ESV
Lord Jesus… I trust You…
forgive me for toting things that aren’t mine to tote…
forgive me for carrying Your responsibility…
and forgetting it is Yours…
Help me to find… Shabbat Shalom…
Amen…
