In today's hectic and distressing world, demands and distractions agitate our spirits. Disasters trigger anxiety. Diseases generate pain. Despair creeps into our hearts. These influences displace our peace and keep us from resting daily in Christ and his word. How can we recapture the concept of daily rest?
In A Month of Sundays: Meditations on Resting in God, author Glenda Mathes encourages us to our spinning thoughts and calm our fluctuating feelings as she helps us to see that we must be true Sabbath keepers, understanding the God has called us to develop daily attitudes of worship and rest we enjoy on Sunday. With a recommended Scripture reading, a focus verse (or verses), a meditation, and questions aimed at stimulating personal reflection, each devotion guides us through a "month of Sundays," as we experience a greater enjoyment of God's gift of daily rest while we anticipate his guarantee of eternal rest.
