If jana’s three dresses were a Chick-Fil-A…

it would have a sign that reads,

“Closed on Sundays”.

Instead, I remember the Sabbath in my own way.  I will post these words every Sunday as a reminder to myself to rest from my work {even though I love writing and it doesn’t feel like work to me}, and take the Sabbath.  The fact is when I am on the computer, I am less attentive to the needs of my husband, children, and home.  I hear His voice less often and am consumed with my thoughts and desires.  I must step away, pause, be quiet, and rest.

 

“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the LORD honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly; then you shall take delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

(Isaiah 58:13-14)

 

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.”

(Exodus 20:8)

 

newly purposed,

jana

    • Thanks, Molly. Yeah, the post is a reminder for me too for when I am tempted to sit at the computer on Sundays instead of play with my boys or hang with my husband. It is funny how when I begin to meditate on a truth in scripture, i.e. the Sabbath, the scripture discussing that topic begins to jump out at me. God says a lot about the Sabbath and how important it is. I am studying the book of Exodus right now. Our modern-day world is just so topsy-turvy it is so easy to forget.

I would love to hear from you!
