Each day we need a little recharge to push through our day well…

Each week we may need to reboot in some way to stay on track with our goals…

Each new season we may need to freshen up our focus on what matters most…

After tough phases of our lives, we may need to do some more extensive rebuilding

Invite the Lord in to explore ways to infuse Sabbath rest for you today.

Allow yourself to chase the threads the Lord weaves throughout your devotional time. Supplement with additional reading on particular topics to enhance your understanding of the concept.

I truly enjoyed Shelly Miller’s Rhythms of Rest while I was journeying through my season of Chasing Quiet a couple years ago.

Pray.  Lord, help us develop ways to Sabbath Well.  Refresh our spirits as we attempt to slow down our bodies and mute our racing thoughts to focus on Your Word for us this day.
