I Think I Need A Day Off~

I have to admit I am one of those people who like to work. I find it really hard to relax. I am working on it ~ truly I am. I get excited when I am productive~ it is fun to me. However, it seems like the older I get  the more I realize there are things more important in life. If we are not careful~while we are working life will pass by us. We may end up getting our list completed but it will be time to say goodbye to those we love and we will miss making so many memories.

I think God had a plan for us workaholics. It is called the Sabbath. We still consider the other 9 commandments worthy of keeping. Like~ killing, stealing, adultery and so on but somehow we think remembering the Sabbath is old-fashioned. I think Jesus gave us an example by taking a day off to rest. In Exodus 20:11 it tells us that God made the world in 6 days and then He rested. 

When I keep up this frantic pace of life 7 days a week I am rejecting God's thoughtful gift~ a day off. Even God gave us this personal example to remind us to slow down long enough to rest~even God rested.

Mark 6:31

 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.

I have a friend that is constantly giving me permission to take a day off. Do you need a day off? I am giving you permission to take one~ make it a good one.
