Bible Study Club: Breathe by Priscilla Shirer.

Making Room for Sabbath

"One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us.

We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites’ mindset. He didn’t just want them legally free; He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today.

If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life."

Join us for this life-changing 5 weeks Bible study.

Each week, we will meet live on Zoom to watch the video lesson, discuss the lesson, talk about practical ways to implement what we learned in our lives, and pray for each other.

The replay of our live Bible Study as well as the video lesson will be available for replay on demand for your convinience, just in case you can't make to the live Bible study call on Zoom.
