Sunday mornings I like to wake up early. It’s the one day of the week when I consistently wake up early. I enjoy a cup of coffee, read my bible, and get prepared for our gatherings at Creekside. It’s quiet and I love it.
I need early Sunday mornings because it’s really the only time of the week that is guaranteed to be quiet. It’s a great time to recharge fir the busy week ahead.
I have not been diligent in maintaining the spiritual discipline of silence and so Sunday morning becomes that for me. It’s amazing how an hour of silence can make everything right in my world.
I’m an introvert as well and I need solitude to keep me sane. Sundays are actually the most people filled days of my entire week. So I need to prepare my self with solitude.
Silence and Solitude can do wonders. Jesus constantly withdrew from the crowds to be alone. With the establishment of the sabbath God must have known how much we would need to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the day.
Questions I have to constantly ask myself are, when did you last sabbath? When did yup last find rest. If it’s been over a week then I’m living my life in an unsustainable rhythm and I need to stop doing that.
What about you? Hows your sabbath doing?
