Scripturethon Day 5

Thanks to everyone for the prayers. I just got back to Austin from Houston safely in one piece.

The past day was spent driving around Houston offering support in the form of egg tarts and socially distant shouts from the driveway. It was a good day being able to see so many people I missed, but I’m feeling completely completely spiritually and physically drained now. 

I’ve been thinking about the meaning of Hebrews 4:8-10 – “For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.”

I’ll take a break from writing an elongated Scripture-thon today to seek to discover more of this rest.

View from the Peter Detmold Park that I would walk to during my lunch break in Manhattan.

I connect to God through nature. In the middle of the busy work-day in the concrete jungle, a few minutes of meditating in God’s word next to the East River always refueled my spirit.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for physical and spiritual rest for people as lockdowns lift and the pace of life quickens

Verse of the Day – 1 Kings 19:5
And he lay down and slept under a broom tree. And behold, an angel touched him and said to him, “Arise and eat.”
