Life is busy. Chaotic. Taxing. Crammed with responsibilities. Jam-packed, too, with great things: family time, relationships, ministry opportunities. But now you’ve carved out some space and some time to experience Sabbath rest. Time to be alone. To breathe. To relax. It’s just you . . . and God. This is your moment to let the stress, worries, and commitments of your life melt away. To turn your attention to God as you offer him uninterrupted time—as you quiet your heart before him and spend time in his presence. This is your time to experience Sabbath rest with God.
