“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
It’s Sunday…take time to RSVP this invitation of Jesus. Take time to stop, to unwind, to languish in the luxury of complete rest and relaxation and renewal.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
“Be still and know that I am God…” (Psalm 46:10)
Yes, be still; it’s Sunday…a day of rest.
Dear Lord, thank you for the night’s rest you so graciously gave me.
I am grateful for renewed energy and enthusiasm.
I accept this new day as a wonderful opportunity.
May I use it minute by minute to do your will.
Guide me in every problem, every decision I shall make this day.
Help me to treat everyone kindly and to be fair and just and thoughtful in everything today.
And if I should forget you during this day, oh Lord, please do not forget me. Amen.
Norman Vincent Peale
