It’s the weekend!
I am sitting and looking at our pew as I write this. This pew is over one hundred years old. It’s a part of our life together. We’ve hauled it along with us each time we moved to different communities and homes.
The thing is . . . I believe less is more . . . so moving means I sift, sort, and let go of many items.
Despite it all, the pew has remained. It’s been painted several times over and put in a variety of places in our home.
And, yes, I wish I would have left the pew in its original condition. What can I say? I go through phases.
Anyway . . .
This. is. sacred. rest.
it’s never easy to transition from the rush and busyness of the week but it’s essential to take a deep breath, slow down, and enter into sacred rest. Sacred rest is soul deep.
Focus on the words of sacred rest from Psalm 23:1-3 (The Passion Translation):
The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd.
I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life. . .
These words teach what occurs soul-deep as we intentionally step away from the pressures to rest in the presence of God.
So. Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or something. Find a sweet spot to reflect and renew yourself in God’s oasis of peace.
Happy Weekend! ~Kerrie
