Book Review:

Robert Morris’ Take The Day Off is a book that will bring you from a place of weariness and burn out to a place of faith and understanding of what a true rest from God the Father is. This book has the ability to change your life when the wisdom found inside is applied. The one thing I admire about Morris’ books are that they are jammed packed with biblical wisdom. For me personally, he brought me a revelation of what ‘sabbath being made for man’ truly means. This book was published at a time in my life where I was weary and needed a true rest. I was working 70+ hours a week as a salaried employee and felt that there was no way out. However, my desire was to honor God on the Sabbath because while reading this book I knew the benefits and what a gift sabbath truly is. In Take The Day Off some of the profound points that Morris had made is that we so easily stray away from the importance of Sabbath when God placed Sabbath in the 10 commandments. He also shared some of his testimony on how observing the Sabbath was learned and how it drastically changed his life.

Overall, I love this book and the wisdom found on every single page. This is a book that I prayed for. Before reading this book, I did not understand Sabbath or how to observe Sabbath. But with Robert Morris greatest book yet, Take The Day off I was given revelation of what Sabbath is and how much it can benefit every single one of us. This book goes in my top five favorite books because it has changed my life. I give Take The Day Off 5 stars and recommend it to everyone who deals with the world we live in today.

Side Note…

Be on the look out for further testimony about how this book and observing the Sabbath has revolutionized my life in upcoming posts.

Light Shine Bright

Have you ever had a chuckle with God? He speaks to you in such a way that throws you for a loop but makes you realize, he is hilarious. This morning as I was ending my time in prayer, I got a taste of his sense of humor wrapped in truth.

He gave me the command, REST.

He spoke so clearly to me and said, “I called you to be a bright light not a dim one”.

When we do not rest, the light that shines from within slowly starts to dim. Sometimes if we are not careful, even burn out. Our world is a 24/7 kind of world. We have access to everything at our fingertips, all day, every single day. How many of you know, however, that we aren’t supposed to be like the world? Can I get an AMEN!? Our light, gives God glory. So shouldn’t we be a good steward with our time and rest too?

The rest we need and we crave so much is ONLY found in him. Take one day a week and REST. It is holy & a gift. He made it just for us! Disconnect from the world and get recharged by the brightest light around.

& remember we are called to be a BRIGHT light, not a dim one.

“You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”-Matthew 5:14-16 AMP

Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” -Mark 2:27 AMP
