Exploring Sabbath: Renewal – July 8, 2018

Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12: 8-10)

The Sabbath is a perfect time to take stock of our lives, and open ourselves up to reflection and renewal as we let go of our own desires for our lives and let God move within us and for us.
