Breathe: Experience a Taste of Heaven through Sabbath {Podcast 514}

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?

Breathe: Experience  a Taste of Heaven through Sabbath

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.

Busyness is our drug of choice. – Elisa

If it gives us comfort, it is our idol. – Elisa

The fourth commandment, to honor the Sabbath, is the only one we’re called to remember. – Kalie

The Sabbath is not only holy and sacred . . . it also about the relationship. – Kalie

The reason we don’t keep the Sabbath is that we’ve made an idol of our productivity, time, accomplishments. – Elisa

Maybe our stuff is keeping us from experiencing true Sabbath rest – Elisa

Sabbath is our breathing room.

Sabbath is our breathing room. – Elisa

Sabbath rest is about ceasing and desisting in the paid work and chores of life to make room to breathe. – Elisa

God calls us to an earthly rest . . . katapauo . . . as a taste of our eternal rest . . . katapusis. That’s what the Sabbath is all about. – Eisa

Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people.

Sabbath is meant to be a taste of eternity on earth. – Elisa

Keeping Sabbath is an invitation to experience our creative God and relational God. – Elisa

We’re living in the here while waiting for the there. – Elisa
