As America enjoys a Labor day weekend — a day designed for rest for the working people — we will keep things simple and restful on the Oaks website too. I hope the extended weekend brings you rest in the form of a more relaxed schedule and naps!
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat— for he grants sleep to those he loves.(Psalm 127:2)
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8)
Life often fails to align with holidays, doesn’t it? Perhaps you are working in a hospital, caring for family, tackling a weekend project, or working in the stores providing Labor Day deals that shoppers are eager to seize.
We can always rest in the presence of God.
Knowing He is with us can bring rest to our souls. This weekend, let’s practice inviting God into every moment, no matter what the moment looks like.
I recently saw a sign with these words:
Rest well, hard-working people!
Picture Explanation: I scanned my media library for purple.
