Day 13

Grace Day

from the I Will Give You Rest reading plan

Ephesians 2:8-9

BY She Reads Truth

Take this day to catch up on your reading, pray, and rest in the presence of the Lord.

 For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—not from works, so that no one can boast.
—Ephesians 2:8–9

    Rest is for our peace. Peace heals. Peace restores. Peace belongs to us. If only you had known. “If thou hadst known, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes”(Luke 19:42 KJV). We could be blind to the things which belong to our peace. Why are they hidden from our eyes? Perhaps because of a disposition that has never been yielded. At least in this our day, may our eyes see the things which belong to OUR peace. Be blessed dear sisters.

    So I was going back and reading the extras in my book and the quotes, there are a few I would like to share because I know some of you don’t get the books and some of you may not have had the time to read them. In one of the extras titled “Spiritual Disciplines and the Sabbath” this “caught my eye” as I was reading, “Sabbath, as a Spiritual discipline, is the weekly practice of abstaining from from work and activity to intentionally worship God and rest in Him.” I really like this because it doesn’t give a specific day and being a nurse I’m not always able to have my Sabbath on Saturday or Sunday.
    Another item that I read that I wanted to pass on was a quote from Ruth Haley Barton — “Sabbath keeping helps us to live within our limits, because on the Sabbath, in many different ways, we allow ourselves to be the creature in the presence of our Creator.” And another quote which I found worth passing on, especially the last sentence, to you my sisters is by Abraham Joshua Herschel, “Six days a week we wrestle with the world, wringing profit from the earth; on the Sabbath we especially care for the seed of eternity planted in the soul. The world has our hands, but our soul belongs to Someone Else.” My SOUL belongs ONLY to MY LORD GOD, CHRIST JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
    Father God Almighty Creator of ALL things I give to You my soul. I know I don’t always follow Your laws and commandments and for that I AM TRULY sorry BUT GOD You are a loving, caring and compassionate God who I know forgives. You sent Your Son, You One and Only Son to die for me and all my sisters and brothers for forgiveness of our sins yet we continue to sin. Please, PLEASE Lord show us Your ways. Our time of Sabbath — rest and peace that can only come from You — needs to be spent with You and please, PLEASE remind us of this. BUT GOD, we SHOULD NEVER be too busy to spend time with You and in Your Word. In Christ’s name, Amen.
    Sorry about rambling but I did want to share those items with you.
    Be blessed and always, ALWAYS rest knowing God, Christ and the Holy Spirit are with you.

    ✓ I am so grateful to be able to spend time in the Word with all of you She’s from around the world. You have helped me in so many ways by your comments and just knowing that we are gathered as one in the Lord. I pray for all of the requests both spoken and silent. May you all be blessed with rest in your lives.
