Not Buying It

. . .that if the peoples of the land bring wares or any grain to sell on the Sabbath day, we would not buy from them on the Sabbath, or on a holy day . . .”  Nehemiah 10:31

We can’t stop others from selling, but we have a choice about what we buy into.

Lord, I desire what I can only have from being with You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

I Don’t Think So

source – wikipedia

We don’t have to
be rude
in order not to buy
what is being sold.

We can turn to God
and away
with a “thank you”  but
“I don’t think so.”

Sabbath Blessings

“And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an out stretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath Day.” Deuteronomy 5:15

God commanded a Sabbath for the people to remember and worship Him, and by so doing, be blessed.

O Lord, may we stop in our striving often to praise and worship You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

A Servant’s Rest

Your mighty hands blocked the stakes
that were meant for me

Your arms stretched out a way
so I could be free

from my slavery to sin
where there was never rest

to being a servant with a Sabbath
whose every day is blessed.
