CONFESSION #5: I often forget to take time to rest.
Today is a Sunday, also known as the Sabbath day, or the day of rest. God made rest and God made the Sabbath day.
So today, and for all future Sundays, I will have a blog post about taking the time to rest. It will be written on a Saturday and posted via online scheduling on a Sunday.
But for today's Creative Sabbath, I'm going back to the beginning.
Genesis 2. God created the world and then on the seventh day, He rested.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
God, the Almighty and the Creator of the world, took time to rest. Even there is any being that does not need to rest, it is God. But He rests, because it is good and he took a break from his work.
Therefore, we should do the same.
In the future, I plan on taking a Sabbath day from my work. While my blog is fun for me, it's still work at times.
For today's Creative Sabbath, I'm meditating on Genesis 2 and taking the time to rest like God rested. I'm also carving a pumpkin with some friends.
Take a Sabbath with me and just enjoy a rest (and maybe even the fall weather while you're at it).
This post is part of a 31 day series called Confessions of a Creative Christian.
