The Sabbath

It comes as quietly as a morning prayer. It stays long enough to refresh my spirit. It invites me to engage in worship. It encourages me to find rest. It is called the Sabbath and I do not just observe it, I embrace it.

"The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul."
-Psalm 23:1-3

Amen, friend! It's like how we fought our naps when we were little kids and we wonder now how we could have ever done that when naps are sweet...may it be like this with Sabbath. Have you read 'Sabbath'{Dan Allender?} or any of Mark Buchanan's sabbath books?
