I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today
William Allen White
R AND R SUNDAY / the beginning or end of the week?
Sunday is not the beginning of the week for most of us but rather the end of the week. It is not the first day of the week, but rather the last day of the weekend. It is not the day we give our best to God, but rather our leftovers. Sunday is no longer that day that many spend worshipping God for a new week that lies ahead, but rather the day when we squeeze every possible ounce of pleasure out of a fading weekend.
Our great-grandfathers called it the Holy Sabbath, our grandfathers called it the Sabbath, and our fathers called it Sunday
Today, we call it the weekend. I read an article that said 70% of Americans face Monday mornings tired, weak and spiritually dead.
Sometimes we begin the week very weak.
I'm not perfect by any means and humbly rely on the good Lord to keep me going. I'm nothing much at all with out Him.
that the Lord didn't do it all in one
day. What makes me think I can?
Sunday is the day I get renewed and refreshed. I rest and relax and rejoice. Spending an hour in church, or reading my Scripture studies, praying or reflecting. I need this time to start a new week. I am a weak person, and need all the help I can get to go through each week.
But those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Taking time out on Sunday is the best way I know to be the best I can be. I want to give my best.
Take some time to appreciate the gift of today for what it is. It's Sunday!
As always you all are in my thoughts and prayers.
