I just returned from a Bible study I only joined last week. The title of our study is Breathe. God created the Sabbath for us to rest. God ordained one whole day of the week as a respite from work. Since we are His creation, He must understand how vital it is for us. How much we women need to hear that!
How many of us feel guilty if we would sit down to do nothing? Which of us checks the schedules of others to see if they have less white space than we do (okay, that would be me). Why do we feel the need to stand around at work on Monday and listen for who had the most overloaded weekend? When did it become a crime to stay home and play a game, read a novel, or put a jigsaw puzzle together?
We. Need. To. Breathe.
My best ideas come in the quiet. I can hear God speak to me in the stillness. I remember what is really important in the hushed peacefulness. I ponder the mysteries of life in the silence.
Here’s hoping you have time to breathe this week!
