It’s been a busy week here in the office. For you too? Are you busy in the fields? Or busy homeschooling your kids? Or involved in a big project at work that is taking all of your time & energy? Or been fighting the many sicknesses that have been going around? Or – or – or…there’s just countless things to do in a week, isn’t there? However your week as gone, let me encourage you that Sunday – our Sabbath – is coming. Exodus 20:11 says, “For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”
This Sunday (our Sabbath) we’ll be worshipping and sharing in Holy Communion together…coming to God with our busyness & our tiredness & hopefully with a ready heart to hear what God is saying. Would you take some time to read and reflect on this prayer, as you prepare for the upcoming Sabbath & Holy Communion?
