Remembering the Sabbath Day

Remembering the Sabbath Day

The gifts of God are many but one of the most precious ones is the command to rest. Exodus 20:8 tells us to remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.  Exodus 34:21 tells us that we are to work for 6 days and then rest on the 7th. Can I get an Amen?!?!?!?

Do you need a fresh touch from God?

Do you need a fresh touch from God?

Some days I wonder if I’m on the right track. I think things like “Lord, did I hear you right?” or “Was that really you or my own wishful thinking?” Do you ever feel that way?

Who am I?

Who am I?

I’m really struggling with who I am in the Lord and His love for me right now, so I am going to write like no one is reading because it really does help to get it all down. Yesterday, I was reading a post from one of my favorite bloggers – Sarah Titus over at sarahtitus.com – and she was talking about us not losing ourselves. I realized that I have definitely lost myself and I’ve posted about that recently, but…
