60 day juice feast: 8/60

Friday, November 02, 2012

Shabbat shalom! This evening begins a Shabbat rest. A 24 hour period to spend only delighting in my Creator, my Savior, and my family. The hours leading to Shabbat are spent preparing for rest. I made sure to juice all the juice I will be drinking tomorrow so that I wouldn’t have to “work” preparing my meals.
It is important to take time to rest and be still. God is smarter then we are, He knew it wouldn’t be easy for us to set a day apart as Holy and to honor Him on our own and so He gave us a day, sanctified it, and hallowed it, and made sure to make it a commandment so that we would remember to stop. Rest. And Be.

Exodus 31:16 ‘And the children of Yisra’ĕl shall guard the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant.
Exodus 31:17 ‘Between Me and the children of Yisra’ĕl it is a sign forever. For in six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ”
