Dear Sabbath Seekers,
This may not apply to all of you but to many of you it will strike a chord. The University of Chicago just came out with a study that says the urge to check tweets, your facebook page or log in is stronger than the urge for sex or nicotine. Like I said this may or may not apply to you! However, what may apply to you is that you are a work-a-holic and you never take a moment off.
My Sabbath Moment challenge this week is to unplug, unhook, or just STOP the time wasters or overworking and use that time for your Sabbath Moments this week. Plug God into your social media time slot and think about what you would write to God on your page or in a tweet. Concentrate on God as your friend, your best friend.
For those of you who do not do social media or overwork relax into your time with God this week. There may be a discussion you need to be having. There may be a dilemma you need help with. There may be a week worth of gratitude you need to express. Or, use this passage from The Message and reflect on it, how it applies to your life, and where your prayer takes you….
” Silence is praise to you, Zion dwelling God, and also obedience. You hear the prayer in it all.” Psalm 65.1-2
Have a great week of being unplugged from the world-wide web and plugged into the web-master of the world.
“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6.15
