Day 33, April 7—Sabbath

“I am thirsty.” –John 19:28

Each Sunday during Lent, give yourself permission to reflect on all God has been speaking to you through His Word over the prior week. Using a Psalm as the focal point, carve out extended time with God to simply listen for the ways He is speaking and moving in you. The goal of this Sabbath break is to allow for space for rest, meditation, and attending to your soul.

Psalm 8

O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
   Your glory is higher than the heavens.
You have taught children and infants
   to tell of your strength,
silencing your enemies
   and all who oppose you.

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers—
   the moon and the stars you set in place—
what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
   human beings that you should care for them?
Yet you made them only a little lower than God
   and crowned them with glory and honor.
You gave them charge of everything you made,
   putting all things under their authority—
the flocks and the herds
   and all the wild animals,
the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea,
   and everything that swims the ocean currents.

O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
