Sabbath or day off?
September 23, 2017 7:19pm CST
Since I am a Christian, my day of rest is supposed to be Sunday (commemorating the Lord's resurrection). But as a church musician I actually work on Sunday. I figure that is OK since the day is for the Lord and the priests worked on Sabbath. Saturday is my day off work. I have to do housework and these days I have rehearsals for the school musical (that is technically work, but I volunteered to do it because it's fun). I do not enjoy housework and cooking (I cook ahead for the next week) but it has to be done. So, my dilemma is when can I relax? I have pretty much solved this problem by saying "On my day off I can do things at my own pace, sleep in a bit, do what I enjoy, but the laundry and cooking have to get done sometime." On Sundays I have a spiritual relaxing time by being at church, then come home and have a nice long nap or go to the center of Tokyo to visit my family, and don't do anything related to my actual job (and try not to do housework either.) How do you find rest? And if you are of a belief that keeps Sabbath, how do you handle that?

i believe i have to be with him (God )daily even if I don't go to church often , I have to talk to him every minute and let him know that you need him every second of your life. Bible is everywhere but you have to understand the content and only few pastors are true to be true and sorry to say I don't want a catholic priest for he wil lead me to wrong belief... very sorry. Bible is my only Guide.
