Sabbath Rest Revisited

Not too long ago I wrote about Sabbath rest. Well, I guess I need to listen to myself. Since presently I work from home, it is easy for me to do "just one thing" here and "one thing" there instead taking one day and using it for what it was intended - REST.

I have found myself tired, stressed out, not able to really concentrate on anything like I should and the thought of having to do just one more thing has put me over the edge more than once. Classes, reports, phone calls, newsletters, etc. will still be there tomorrow. I NEED to take time - time to rest, relax, reflect, renew. If I don't, I won't be good for anyone or anything!

Missionary Eyes

Missionary Eyes
by Wayne Talley

Lord, give me missionary eyes
To see the lost and dying,
To see their pain and crying.
Lord, give me missionary eyes.

Lord, give me missionary hands
To selflessly serve in any way I can.
Knowing that my reward will be
Eternity spent next to Thee.
Lord, give me missionary hands.

Lord, give me missionary feet
To take your precious gospel down the street
To those who need to hear today,
To those who need to know the Way.
Lord, give me missionary feet.

Lord, give me missionary zeal
For there’s a dying world that needs
To feel that someone cares about their soul.
Loosen my tongue, Lord, make me bold.
Lord give me missionary zeal.

Lord give me missionary eyes
To see the lost and dying.
To see their pain and crying.
Lord give me missionary eyes.

Sabbath Rest

Scripture tells us that God created the world in six day, and on the seventh day He rested. It also says that the Sabbath was made for man...

As human beings, we need a day to rest, reflect meditate, spend time with the Lord and be renewed.

Today, I finished 1 lesson of my Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages class and did the entire next lesson. Six down, fourteen to go!) Plus cooking,dishes, and all the other stuff I do day to day. I know I am in need of a Sabbath rest. I need to relax my mind and my body and I need to spend time with God.

And, I'm looking forward to it. How about you?
