A Sabbath Moment

Hebrew Shabbat (שַׁבָּת), “to cease”
Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
               Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
   Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
Psalm 51:10-12


Right spirit

It is in rest that God can cleanse me afresh, change me to walk uprightly, bring me back to a closeness with Him, revitalize the joy of my salvation, and call to remembrance all He is and all He does in my life.

In rest, LORD, You refresh me to Your reborn child.  You remind me through Your Word of Your promises and Your prophecies.  You call me back onto the path, the future You have made for me.  You rejoice over me with Your gladness.  And You quiet me by Your love that I mayrest in You.  May I peacefully lay in Your arms besides the still waters.  Amen.
