Rambling Sabbath Thoughts

Hey, guys. I know I normally do not write to you so late on a Saturday evening, but today has been a little bit different for us. It has been a family day, and we are tying up some loose ends before we go to bed. I must admit, our living area is quite the mess. It appears like everyone has had a good time today!

There are so many little blessings in my life. So many things that I sometimes take for granted. My Heavenly Father has given me such a rich life!

I never would have imagined growing up that I would have the family that I do now. My, have I been blessed! A long time ago, I would have thought that having a large family would have just been a burden to me. I did not desire it.

While surrendering my life to the Lord, He showed me just how wonderful it is to have a large family. He created each of my children, and has a purpose for them. And He used my body as a vessel to bring them to earth. How amazing is that?

Earlier today, we took a drive into the mountains. While passing by a meandering creek, I was totally taken by God’s creation. How could the same Great God who made the mountains and rivers care about little ol’ me? It is really mind boggling to think about.

He cares about everything I do. Just like I care for my children, He cares for His. The thing is, He cares about His children way more perfectly than I do mine. He is God! It is something we can’t quite comprehend, I think.

My heart just overflows when I try to think about it. It makes me want to love Him in return.

Scriptural love isn’t just in word, but in deed and in truth (1 John 3:18). Love is an action.

I’ve been studying about the Jewish faith in the time of Jesus lately, and I have learned a few things that are quite interesting. Did you know that Jews consider praying out loud a good deed? This is probably one of the reasons why Christ said that one shouldn’t pray loudly in public just to be heard by others. Instead, our personal prayers should be in private, where our Heavenly Father hears and will reward us for those prayers.

“And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”

-Matthew 6:5-6

After learning this, I’ve started to pray out loud during my personal prayer time. I believe it has brought about a good change in me. 

It is exciting to learn about ways to continue growing in my walk with God.

I hope this post didn’t ramble too much. These are just a few of my thoughts as we close out the Sabbath.

I would like to encourage you to love God fully. If He is encouraging you to do something, do it. He cares for you so much, and has your best in mind.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. I will talk to you soon!
