WE ALL HAVE busy lives, and we forget to rest;
but the Bible reminds us that the Sabbath day is meant for rest.
Let’s take a day each week or find time each day to rest,
to listen to God,
and to pray that God will restore us body and soul
so that we may glorify God in all we do.

Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
Luke 3:21-22, NRSV
