“On the Sabbath, the world rests firmly in the palms of God. Neither the stars nor the birds fall from the sky. But unlike the other days of creation, the entry is missing the closing refrain, ‘And there was evening and there was morning the [insert the numeral] day.’ All other days close with the same chorus, except the seventh. Why? Maybe because God is inviting us to enter rest and reminding us that the invitation has no expiration date.”

“I discovered the Sabbath isn’t about what is done or left undone as much as breathing in the goodness of God. The more I inhaled, the more I desired another long breath.”

Even in the midst of hardship, God's spirit infuses us with unexplainable joy.

“Paul never suggests that believers deny the grief or pain that adversity brings but rather that they recognize, even in the midst of hardship, God’s spirit infusing us with joy. Such mirth can’t be self-produced; it is a gift of God and evidence of the Spirit. This unexplainable joy is one of the hallmarks of those who follow Christ, setting them apart from many religions, both ancient and modern.”

“Breathing life begins with the simplest of actions. See someone. Really see. As you reach out and interact, offer your full attention to whoever is in front of you. Listen to someone. Really listen. Give someone the gift of your presence—your fully present, undivided attention. Pray for someone. Really pray. Though it may feel awkward in the moment, ask if you can offer a prayer, and bless the person with kindness. Give to someone. Really give of yourself. Find an unexpected way to help someone whose needs remain unmet. Radiate the generosity of Christ.”

 “The wonder of restoration is exemplified through the visions of Ezekiel--an exiled Old Testament prophet, and realized throughout the life of Christ. In Jesus’ journeys, he routinely looked on  people the religious leaders dismissed, and spoke life, leaving those who watched awestruck by the wonder of restoration. Such moments invite us to inhale and exhale divine restoration more fully.”
