In my last post , Shalom of Yeshua, I wrote about how in the last couple years, I have come to a place of peace that I never knew before. A friend who has known me many years, recently asked were this deep peace came from. So, I have been pondering her question and the answer is bigger than just, “from Yeshua.” So, I decided to answer with a blog series on Shalom.
Shalom means peace in Hebrew.
This is my second post in the series and I will be discussing Sabbath.
Sabbath means rest. It is also the name of the seventh day of the week. All the other days of the week are not named in Hebrew. Each day is just called Day One, Day two, Day Three, etc.
But what does this have to do with how I found a deep peace? It is not easy to explain. It is something one has to experience for themselves to really understand. But in hopes that you might consider keeping the Sabbath, I will do my best to share.
A few years ago, a friend posted this Bible study on her blog. Sabbath Study This study takes you through every scripture that has the word Sabbath in it. It is a great study. I did the study by myself. Then I did it with my oldest daughter. We decided to try and keep Sabbath. We started by not buying and selling on Saturday. We also tried to limit our work on that day. We did not have a preparation day at first. Instead, we just had what we call, “make your own meals day.” Everyone had to make their own meal and clean up after themselves and their buddy. We tried to limit things like TV and internet. But it was just the two of us that knew what we were doing. It was nice to have a day that I didn’t think about school lessons, bills, groceries, meals, etc. But the house was sort of a wreck the next day.
It was about the time we moved back to Michigan, when I shared this study with Jeremy. He too wanted to try it and see if it was even possible to do a full day of rest. So, we began doing nothing on Saturdays and pre-cooking our meals the day before. We could see that there was truly a blessing in this day of rest. Slowly over time, we started to figure out how to really rest and reflect on the Lord’s goodness each week on this set apart day.
I don’t think there is any perfect way of keeping the Sabbath, but I do think that if you seek to keep it set apart, Yehovah will bless you with a rest that brings peace (Shalom).
Here is the scripture that really got me started on wondering about Sabbath and God’s feasts (which I will touch on in a later post in the series).
Please consider taking the time to do this study. Sabbath Study
I truly hope you read this passage and do this study and that they will bring you peace and comfort.

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
