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.

As God’s people, we can rest in the reality that we have a place in the kingdom of God—not because of our own work, but because of the full and final work of Christ.

    Meditating today on the fact my “Kingdom Rest” is prepaid. If I don’t have to work to gain entry what am I doing with my time? What treasures am I storing?

    Rachel From Texas– I think you are spot on with your thoughts about the Sabbath for all people, not just moms. While it can include physical rest or rest from work, it is primarily meant to make sure we are dedicating time to worship and develop a closer relationship with our savior. Those little moments throughout our busy weeks that allow us to mentally and spiritually rest in him. The brief breaks that allow us to reset our focus and our priorities. It may be ten minutes here, ten minutes there, but every little bit adds up! As christians we refer to Sunday as the Sabbath because of it being the day of Christ’s resurrection, but it’s really a mindset that we carry with us throughout the week. Being focused on thriving in Christ, not striving in the world.

    He cannot work through us unless He works in us. This is why it is important for us to spend time daily in the Word and prayer, and to yield to Christ during times of suffering. For it is through the Word, prayer, and suffering that God works in us.
    As we read God’s Word, understand it, meditate on it, and feed on it, the Word goes to work in our lives to cleanse us and nourish us. As we pray, God’s spirit works in us to release power. And as we suffer, the Spirit of God ministers to us. Suffering drives us back to the Word and prayer, and the cycle is repeated. – Warren Wiersbe
    Amen and amen.
    Hugs and prayers for all my She sisters ❤️

    Revelations 22:17 Both the Spirit and bride say, “Come!” Let anyone who hears, say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come. Let the one who desires take the water of life freely.

    Can’t wait for Heaven!

    Revelations 2:4 (Note under the Scripture link for Revelation 2:1-17) – “they will see his face This previously resulted in death (e.g., Exod 33:20; compare Isa 6:5). Now, it is described as a life-giving blessing for God’s people.”
    Seeing Him face to face, no other illumination needed! Wow.

    On Sunday we sang Hymn of Heaven at church and this reading today took me back to that worship. After reading today I felt at a loss for words and turned on that song to praise and worship. ❤️

    Tiffany C- so true! When I’m lacking a lot of sleep, my whole person is disrupted. May God truly help us and keep us in these times. I pray that for all the moms and caregivers here <3
