A Day of Rest

 Remember the Sabbath Day by keeping it Holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work. Exodus 20:8-9

 Not only is Sunday supposed to be the day set aside to honor and worship God, but it is also designated as a day of rest. As my sister pointed out, this means rest from worries, stress, and problems of life. This is a day for you to not dwell on them and let your mind take a vacation of sorts. It is not just rest from physical labors. When I was a child there were hardly any stores open on Sunday. It was refreshing.

Are you able to not just go to church on Sunday but to let go of the troubles of your world for just one day? God does not intend for us to be constantly burdened. He does not want you stressed at all but so many of us can not trust Him to take care of us. Rest is important for our minds and our bodies. This one day should be set aside to be kept Holy.

 What is keeping you from a Sabbath rest?  Did you enjoy it yesterday?

PRAYER: Help me Lord to be able to take one day a week to kick back and relax. I know you set aside the 7th day for rest. After creating the world, you said, "it is good" and you rested. I too need to learn to rest. In Jesus' name. Amen.
