Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists
- Year of the Bible

The Sabbath is a gift for all humanity!
God always gives us what we need, not what we deserve.
This verse reminds me that, as a Christ-follower, I have the hope of eternal life when the curtain closes on human history.
In the days when I was young and bold, or as my mother would objectively say, “careless,” I ventured out from my hotel room at 2:00 a.m.
The verse speaks life to me because of the steps I took to experience rest personally, and the rest I invite others in crises to experience in my clinical ministry practice.
Once we have compassion that moves us from our comfort zone, the Holy Spirit can do amazing things through us.
The truth of this verse gives us this pragmatic reality: We are not always where we are based on our merit, nor are we always denied our goals because of our lack.
I learned this verse as a child, but needed a gentle reminder that, even when trials and tribulations come—which they will—we must trust in the Lord with all our heart, and not lean on what we think is best.
God has clearly chosen me, and all of us for that matter, but have I chosen God?
