You have six days when you can do your work, but the seventh day of each week belongs to me, your God. No one is to work on that day--not you, your children, your slaves, your animals, or the foreigners who live in your towns.
How are your Sabbath's going? Mine have been busy. I seem to allow my chores to pile up and I tend to spend Sunday's playing "catch up" so I'm ready for Monday. This is a bad habit! God broke that habit for me last week. I had planned to do so much and He had people stop by to visit and that took up my entire afternoon and evening.
I realized that He was serious about having us relax and enjoy our Sunday's so I had better get serious about planning ahead. I read that if you want to rest on Sunday you have to work backwards to get your chores done by Saturday night. This is true! This week I made sure the laundry was done by Friday. Then on Saturday, I cleaned house, went grocery shopping, and paid the bills. It was exhausting! But it was done. That left us wide open to pursue friendships or just relax at home on our Sabbath! It's worth the effort.
I want to encourage you to look at your Sundays and decide what you can do ahead of time to allow yourself to really find rest in the Lord on His day!
God Bless you this weekend.
