Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth.
Tonight I gave SBUMCSHBS the gift of quiet time with God. We have been studying time, Sabbath and connecting with God a lot this year. We began the hour by centering ourselves, getting the noise out of our heads and putting aside our phones:
Students, journals and pens in hand, quietly rotated through five prayer stations. Each station had a description, Scripture, reflection questions, an activity and a prayer.
They lit a candle and asked for God’s light in the areas of life that needed guidance:
They wrote on a stone as they remembered what God has delivered us from and what He has given us:
They enjoyed grapes and bread as they remembered God’s blessings from the earth:
With water, they were cleansed and made whole and renewed:
And, perhaps most importantly, they
simply rested in quiet meditation:
What a joy to share the gift of quiet time with God!
How do you observe Sabbath time?
What can you do today to quiet yourselves and just be in God’s presence?
