Even after the long season I spent in Destiny Church’s Prayer Room being a Mary, I find my Martha tendencies raring to go and hovering just below the surface. I know I’m not alone in this. Now I don’t know about you, but He’s been showing me one place He wants me to get better: the Sabbath.
The Father has really put it on my heart that I need to be truly observing the Sabbath (Shabbat). I stopped doing what *I* considered work on the Sabbath a while ago (e.g. dyeing, sewing, etc). But I love interacting with you all so much that for a long while I have justified periodic contact with some of you on the Sabbath – after all, I’m doing His work, right? And frankly, most of the time talking to you guys doesn’t feel like work!
That said I can’t deny the increasing conviction I’ve come under that I truly have to draw a firm line in the sand and honor Him by completely setting aside the Sabbath for Him and not compromising on it.
What this means is from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday each week I will not be looking at or responding to any emails sent to the ministry or returning or receiving calls regarding the ministry during this time. I trust that you all will understand and know that this is in NO way because I don’t feel you are important, it’s that I know we are all trying to make Him the most important in each of our lives.
I will respond to any contact as quickly after the Sabbath as I can. If you know you need to get in touch with me and it’s time sensitive, please try to email it enough in advance that I will have time to respond. If you send an email just before Sabbath begins and for some reason I’m not able to respond to it before sundown, know that I will as soon as possible Saturday evening or on Sunday.
Thank you all for understanding and for your support of my continuous pursuit to be more like Mary 😉
