It is also important for us to use this day as a day of rest as He intended. We need this respite from the workweek to maintain our balance and direction in life. And, above all, we need to always remember that He is there for us always, and He is ready to respond if we will just take the time to honestly ask for His help and guidance.
Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing, take a moment to commune with Him and seek His wisdom. It can be anywhere: in church, on a country path, sitting by the ocean or a lake or, if you are infirm, in your sick bed. Just do it and you will feel rejuvenated, look at life differently, and strive for perfection both for God and His glory and for your own self renewal.
Dear Lord: Thank you for the beauty of this world and for Thy loving hand in keeping us in Thy heart. Help us to be ever mindful of Thy love and presence and to routinely commune with Thee about all things that trouble us. And also help us to remember to thank Thee daily for all that we have, for without Thee there would be nothing.
Help us to fear not, but to be a living example of Thy love and the life that Jesus Christ shed for us so that we might be blessed with eternal life. Let us never forget this never ending gift and its primacy in our lives. And go with us in the upcoming work week to live as Thy shining example to all those who haven't found Thee. We ask in Thy name, Amen.
Have a wonderful Sunday worshiping the Lord, praising His name, and then resting and relaxing with family and friends. There is plenty of time tomorrow to deal with your earthly life and worries.
God bless you all.
