If you are a regular reader of my blogs, Daily Bread Crumbs or Reclamation316, you that that I frequently write about Sabbath Rest, slowing down, being still, etc. As a recovering workaholic, I have this sermon down pat. I can preach all the how-to’s and where-for’s of not resting.
When I write about sabbath rest, a few of you chime in and said, “Preach it pastor! I love this encouragement.
If I listen for the still small voice of God, I hear Him saying, “Rus, practice what you preach!” (PWYP)
When I began writing my devotionals, I committed myself to posting them daily. Good writing requires daily discipline and practice. This is a discipline of reading and writing which soothes my soul.
But even the daily writer needs sabbath rest!
Thus, for the next 16 days, until July 31, I will be PWYP about Sabbath Rest and take a break from writing these daily devotionals.
Come back on August 1. I will have a word of encouragement for you.
Until then, remember, “God loves you!”
