"Pasture of the Soul (These are not my words but those of Max Lucado in his book "Traveling Light"

God gave a day of rest to those who work. *That day in the Old Testament was Saturday (or 7th day.)* They were commanded to rest on Saturday."...If creation didn’t crash when *He rested, it won’t crash when you do!" You know we need to rest. ( ** My belief is that our days of resting, today are not limited to Saturday.** )

"For a field to bear fruit, it must occasionally lie fallow. And for you to be healthy, you must rest. When David says in the 23rdPsalm, “He makes me to lie down in green pastures,” he’s saying, “My shepherd makes me lie down in his finished work.”

With His own pierced hands, Jesus created a pasture for the soul. He pried loose the huge boulders of sin. In their place He planted seeds of grace and dug ponds of mercy. Can you imagine the satisfaction in the heart of the shepherd when the work is completed and he sees his sheep rest in the tender grass? Can you imagine the satisfaction in the heart of God when we do the same?"

(* **Comments by Judy)
When I read about the price that Jesus and the Father paid for my sins, I feel so unworthy of such a sacrifice. BUT. I am not worthless. He did it for me (and for all). We may feel worthless at times...because of others' comments or our own internal preconceived shortcomings. Think about it. Why would our Father give his only Son to redeem us from our sins. We are not worthless...to the contrary. Matthew 6:28-29; (KJV)"28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."
Therefore, remember that we are highly valued by our Father. Think of the price that was paid for our redemption from sin. In all of His creation, you and I are highly favored above that created by Jehovah (Each {Creator} ). Remember the price that was paid. Redeemed by THE Lamb of God, worthy perfect lamb. And He did it all for us.

In the eyes of our Father, we are worth trying to get healthy. So let us accept the price that was paid for us with everlasting gratitude.

    Thank you Judy, It is a blessing to read your blog and I just love Guy Penrod He came to Ontario, Canada twice and I got to see him. I couldn't help but cry hearing his singing. I have 4 of his CDs and listen to them often and sing along with them. I also love to watch Bill Gaither programs when they are on. In my car, I have Serius XM and only listen to Joel Osteen preaching.
    Blessings to you and may you have a great week. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for sharing. I especially like your comment about "worth trying to get healthy." It is our responsibility for Paul tells us that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). Our desire ought to be the best we can be for the habitation of the Holy Spirit. Again, thanks for sharing.
