Gift of the Sabbath

March 10, 2013 0

John 14: 5-6

​Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

​I sure am grateful  Lord  that  you let  me rest from the work . But  Father  I’m afraid   that I’m  my own worst enemy.  Why  is resting  so hard? It seems  shameful to say it Lord but please show  me  how to turn off the computer, ignore the  emails and take the  gift  of Sabbath.

Teach me how to re-create, refresh and  dig deeper into the well  that is  your love. I need that Lord because I’m just hardwired into pretending that I can  go it  alone and  do it all in my  own strength.

This worker is often not very  smart, I’m   just so  grateful that I  can come before you and pause.  Let  me  hide in the shadow of  your wing.

You are  amazing  Lord, you  just  keep on loving,  be  my  boss forever , please!

Amen.
