There’s not much that takes my time and energy these days. I was raised to treat Sunday differently. It’s not that what I do on any day is much different on Sunday, however because of this Bible lesson I’m going to make what I think about and do on Sundays is much more intentional about Jesus and my relationship with Him.

Dear Lord,
I ask you right now in the name of Jesus that you give me much needed rest from the trauma I experienced in my life. As my therapist and I deal with these issues, I pray that you will assist me through this process. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen!

Heavenly Father, just as You took time out to share Your presence with us, help me to do likewise. Help me to rest in Your presence so that I may be refreshed and helped by Your grace and Your love. They are the ingredients for perfect enjoyment of life.
