Does your heart need space to slow down, rest, and process?
In her book Rhythms of Renewal, Rebekah Lyons said, “Taking a rest isn’t a sign of weakness. Yet our culture whispers the opposite: if we try harder, work smarter, make the right career moves…we just might live a life of significance. But God declares that we are already chosen, beloved, appointed, and set apart.”
So out of our belovedness we rest. We pause. We Sabbath.
This next week will be quiet here at Velvet Ashes as we create this extra space. There won’t be any blog posts or social media posts, and we hope that this will be a special time as we Sabbath together. Let’s intentionally pursue rest and refreshment this week!
If you need some direction on Sabbath, you can look back at previous posts on the topic HERE.
