1 It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.
I didn’t realize that there was a song for the Sabbath in the Psalms. I think this would be a great Psalm for every day though!
My sons love Sabbath. A special dinner, blessings for my children. A time to breathe. A time with God. Oh.
My children ask that we celebrate Sabbath every week. I seem to get so busy that by the time Sabbath comes along I am not prepared. My calendar got full, my to-do list was packed and I didn’t think ahead. Sabbath was not my priority this week or last.
Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lordyour God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days the Lordmade the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lordblessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
It is a commandment. It is more than just going to church for our family. Its sitting down, talking about our blessings, blessing each other, confessing our sins, sitting down for a special meal.
1 John 5:3 “In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome,”
Please forgive me Father. Thank you God for keeping this in front of me, for myself and for my family. I pray that Sabbath becomes so special to me that I long for it every week as my sons do.
