Dear Sabbath Seekers,
I came across this version of the Twenty Third Psalm from Japan and want to share it with you as our Sabbath Moment for this week. Keep it close by, read it every day or more often and let the words flow through you and over you creating Sabbath Moments in their wake.
The Lord is my pace setter…I shall not rush
He makes me stop for quiet intervals
He provides me with images of stillness which restore my serenity.
He leads me in the way of efficiency through calmness of mind and his guidance is peace.
Even though I have a great many things to accomplish each day, I will not fret, for his presence is here
His timelessness, his all importance will keep me in balance
He prepares refreshment and renewal in the midst of my activity by anointing my mind with his oils of tranquility
My cup of joyous energy overflows
Truly harmony and effectiveness shall be the fruits of my hours for I shall walk in the Pace of the Lord and dwell in his house for ever.
Be blessed this week by these words,
