God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 1:31-2:3 (emphasis added)
A little over a year ago, I wrote a devotion on this verse and what it means to me. With school starting this week and piled up, neglected work and clients calling me asking for it and . . . I’m . . . overextended. And with the holiday season coming up and the frantic pace that can so easily go with it, I pulled this devotion to present at a women’s meeting I’m scheduled to speak at this week. I just needed the reminder. Maybe you do too? If so, check out “even GOD rested.” at Pragmatic Communion.
