“Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto Elohim. And the peace of Elohim which passeth all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Messiah Yeshua.” Philippians 4:6-7
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee; because he trusteth in Thee.” Isaiah 26:3
The devotional book I read from this Sabbath was The Christian’s Secret of a happy life, chapter 3: The Life Defined, Hannah Whital Smith
This chapter defined a life of rest as one that is constantly taking its burdens to Yahweh and leaving them there. If they return, you keep going back again until peace is restored to your heart.
Sounds simple until real life hits again after the Sabbath. We often forget to go to The Father in all the busyness, frustrations, and irritations in our day. With dealing with children’s squables, cranky toddlers, and trying to multitask all the many responsibilities in our lives; prayer is easy to just not think about (I’m not referring to a private prayer time here, but praying as we go about our day and face circumstances or thoughts that cause us to loose our peace.).
As I thought about these things, I was reminded of a book I read as a youth called, Practicing the Presence of God. I think the author’s life was an example of what it means to be in prayer as one goes about their day to day responsibilities. It would be worth another read once I locate a copy.
