In his book “Sabbath” author Wayne Muller addresses the benefits of observing the Sabbath. He urges us to schedule regular time away from the busyness of daily life. As we turn our attention away from striving for progress, we create space to realize “… we are already and always on sacred ground. The gifts of grace and delight are present and abundant; the time to live and love and give thanks and rest and delight is now, this moment, this day. Feel what heaven is like; have a taste of eternity. The time to sleep, to rest, is now. We are already home.”
“The true Sabbath is that state of spiritual attainment where man ceases from all personal effort and all belief in his own works, and rests in the consciousness that ‘the Father abiding in me doeth his works’ (John 14:10).” ~The Revealing Word
It is in the stillness that I know the Power and Presence of God within me.
