Settle and Release
Find a comfortable spot. Take a few slow, deep breaths. Let your muscles relax. Open your heart to listen to the Holy Spirit. Do you notice any blocks popping up? Release them as an offering to God.
Encounter God in the Word
On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.
Reflect: Feast on the Word
Which of your works has God completed? Give thanks for completed tasks and seasons. Check with your spirit: are you resting from what is completed? If not, release them to God’s rest.
Join with the Holy Spirit and bless the completed work.
Invite the Spirit to show you what is holy about rest.
Abide with the God who rests and gives rest.
Seal this time with a short prayer of thanks.
