Start each day by reading the Scripture. During this reading plan, we’ll then use the summary provided here to guide our discussion around the daily reading.

In His teaching and ministry, Jesus reminded people about the heart of the Sabbath. More than a rule or a law, it was always intended to be a regular reminder of His true rest.

    Mental health struggles are the worst! But I love the way you worded it! To rest in the Lord is to “just be okay with where I’m at and pickup the struggle on another day!”

    I love how throughout the Bible God is continually reminding us that He gives us rest. He is continually show us His redemptive plan for our lives.

    It’s a sunny afternoon here for us and I walked to pick up my kiddo from school. I usually drove but a walk would do me wonders. I need to shed some pounds of the baby weight lol. The sun was lovely, and it’s precious especially during long dark winter months here up north.

    @Searching: what you wrote made me think. Several times my own family members also rejected my “Offering Jesus” to them in subtle ways, and blunt ways, and I felt incredibly hurt. Sometimes I took it as they rejected me, but they rejected the Lord in me. It sort of reminds me when the Israelites rejected the prophet Samuel and he cried to God being so hurt, and God said, they didn’t reject you but they rejected Me (1 Samuel 8:7). “Blessed are the poor in spirit” (Matthew 5:3). It does take us a long long while to realize we are poor. The knowledge of our own poverty will bring us to the Kingdom. Poverty, not possessions. Some are full of possessions yet, the poorest people on earth. May you find comfort that you did the right thing <3
    @Sarah D: praying for you. Hope you will feel better.
    @Kim Z: praying for a lovely vacay and safe travel ahead. Enjoy your time sister ;)
    @Gramsiesue: loved the discreet difference you pointed out. Legalism by Sabbath is awful. The Pharisees truly can twist and pervert scriptures to burden.
    @Mari: praying for your daughter's rest, and your readiness/strength for marathon. You go girl!!

    Be blessed dear sisters. May the Sabbath rest refresh your soul. Have a lovely weekend.

    Yes! True Rest. I struggle with the concept on the daily, but True Rest. To lay down the burden that we carry wether it’s work or not. I also need to see this concept in needing rest from my struggling mental health. I struggle with my mental health and I need to start being okay with True Rest from this burden. It sounds incredibly healthy to me and and I think it’s worthy of laying down a part of me that I struggle with for a short while. To just be okay with where I’m at and pick up the struggle on another day so I don’t burn out.
