To Work and To Rest – Blessings of God

3 and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— 4 to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, 5 to cut and set stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of crafts.  Exodus 31


13 “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.

14 ” ‘Observe the Sabbath, because it is holy to you. …  15 For six days work is to be done, but the seventh day is a day of sabbath rest, holy to the LORD.

May 8 ’19 Wed.

Exodus 31.

To be an artist — want to be filled with the Spirit of God so that I can be good at the art and enjoy my work and glorify my God.  Like Bach writing his Messiah or even just a little sketch.

Exodus 31 is also about Sabbath rest.  I feel that both my body and mind are slowing down as I approach 60.  Will I be able to work 10 more years?  Don’t know.  I want to work and then rest when it’s time to rest.  For 6 days — will do something and rest 1 day.  God knows what works for us.

Both to work and to rest are blessings from God and gives me joy.
