Link up and share how you are savoring and cherishing a time of rest and worship.
(To read more about this, visit the intro at Living a Simple Life: Resting.)
As I seek a time of rest and intimacy with my Savior, I am often inspired in my reading. Lately I have been gleaning so much encouragement and edification from the book A Place of Quiet Rest by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
I have been making my way slowly through the book (unlike how I usually speed-read!), savoring the words from some wise women, such as Kay Arthur, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Elisabeth Elliot. The introspective questions at the end of each chapter call me to think deeply, evaluating my days.
It’s stretching, convicting, growing… and it’s good.
As I read, I am called away from the dailyness of balancing a grocery budget, mending for growing little ones, and scrubbing muddy footprints… I am called to the arms of my Father.
I am drawn with delight into His Word, and I rest in Him… A “honeymoon” of sorts with my Bridegroom.
How are you Simply Savoring the Sabbath this weekend?
Whether it’s taking a hike with your family in God’s creation, setting aside a special quiet time for reading and prayer, exploring new avenues of creativity, delving into sharing a gift of hospitality, or something else, I’d love to hear about it!
Please link to your Specific Post (not your blog’s homepage). The linky will remain open through Monday evening. (If you don’t have a blog, you can leave a note with your thoughts in the comments.)
