Summer Solace: Be Still and Bask in God's Spirit

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7 (NRSV)

My mother used to tell me, “Sunday is the day of rest.” She didn’t mean it was a day for sleeping and napping. Sabbath means to stop, desist, and rest. It means having a restful spirit.

 

Do you ever feel anxious? 

 

Rest is a gift from God. God rested after creating the whole world. On Sunday, God wants us to have a day of rest — of serenity and calm. This means being still and feeling God's presence. Times of quiet and worship allow us to bask in God's love.

 

My hope for you this summer is to experience God's rest, not just on Sundays, but every day. Summertime can be a Sabbath from worries and anxieties. Let go of your anxious mind and agitations, and bask in God’s glorious creation. Center your life in the holiness of God in every moment. My prayer for you is that this summer will be a time of rest in God. To "be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10).
