The red tide has almost disappeared from our beach location, so we decided to take the weekend and rest there. I saw the full moon last night and watched the sunrise this morning; both give me such peace. Sometimes I get so distracted by the things happening in the world that I forget to take a break from it, though not forgetting to pray for my fellow Christians facing challenges. We must be diligent and pay attention to what is going on, like the watchman on the wall, but not overcome by it. Rest is an essential part of ministry; you cannot give if you have nothing left. It’s Saturday, the Sabbath; use today to rest and rejuvenate.
Remember, we are not the target of God’s wrath; we are safe and at rest in Jesus.
and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. 1 Thessalonians 1:10
