Communing with Jesus
Being blessed is about more than being happy. In today’s podcast, we think about how to receive this word from Jesus, even on the more difficult days. Join me in taking a moment to listen to the beatitudes today and learn about Jesus’ definition of blessed.
Creation was made to worship God. We see this through the creation story and how not only did God make the universe to worship Him, but He made you and I for worship. In today’s post, we learn more about how God communicates with us through nature and is with us in both familiar and unfamiliar places.
Sabbath is part of the creation story, what God did on the seventh day not because He needed rest but to model a behavior of rest to us, His chosen and loved people. While my sabbatical has been an extended break over the summer, my hope is to continue this action of pressing pause once a week as my family transitions out of summer and into our fall schedule. Even though my sabbatical has come to an end, I look forward to receiving the gift of Sabbath in the weeks ahead.

This summer, I’m going off-line and taking a sabbatical from social media.
A sabbatical is a short term break that can produce long term results. A sabbatical is another form of practicing the Sabbath, which is typically a day of rest. People will often take sabbaticals from their professional careers for a month or up to a year so they can travel, study, or write. Our souls need sabbaticals so that we can live life in the Spirit. To live in the Spirit, we have to rest in the Spirit.
