Sabbath Moments



Sabbath Moments are those times when we let go and let God. This weekly meme hosted by Colleen at Thoughts on Grace reminds us to keep our eyes on the Lord and find our rest in Him. God's love for us is especially easy to find this week as we meditate on Christ's Passion and the gift of our salvation. I had many fruitful meditations and wonderful moments with God. Even the weather was gorgeous these past few days. Last night I even slept! Praise God! For me, that's a wonderful Sabbath Moment :) Earlier this week, two wonderful ladies with some beautiful gifts of the Holy Spirit prayed over me. Years ago, I would never have allowed this. My brother had called me and asked if I would like to go with him to get prayed over after Mass last Sunday. I felt a strong desire to go, so I did. I'm glad I went. Not only was it beautiful hearing them praise our Lord, as the week went on I felt better and better. Thursday night I had the best sleep that I had in months! I only woke up once (during mercy hour of course), praised God for a little while, asked for mercy for our world, and then fell back asleep. What a blessing! Those who suffer from insomnia probably can relate; a good night's sleep works wonders, both for our bodies and minds. Thank you, Lord!
