Does “sabbath” feel like a dirty word to you? Like, “Hush woman, I don’t want to talk about that because there is no way I can honor the Sabbath with all I have to do!”
Maybe the idea of Sabbath sounds wonderful, but you can’t quite figure out how to logistically make that happen for you and your family?
Well, what if you thought of Sabbath as a gift instead of a burden? What if it was the very secret to discovering how to breathe again . . . deep exhales that enable you to face life renewed and refreshed?
On this episode of the More to Be Podcast, Kalie and I unpack the principles and promises that lay the purpose for modern-day Sabbath-keeping. We each share our own imperfect journeys as we have uncovered the gift of Sabbath and the purpose of this covenant God made with the Israelites that is to be remembered by every generation. We’re not giving you a bar to rise up to but rather the inspiration along with an invitation to explore a practice of Sabbath-keeping as you consider this opportunity to breathe each week and taste a bit of heaven on earth.
