We thank you for the opportunity to be together to learn more about you and to discuss these things that are in the lesson. Open our hearts and minds to your ways and help us to remember always that we are your representatives in your ambassadors these things we asked in the press holy name of jesus amen amen. Thank you nail. In the previous less than the number age we spoke about. How can we be free to experience. The rest that god offers and we mentioned that one of the things that we face in the broken world after the fall is being overwhelmed with the needs of people and the broken us and dealing with it by apportioning blame is not going to help us and that's why we said that the way to deal with it. It's either through forgiveness. That was the first story or do understand that when we are overwhelmed by it as elijah was that god steal can work without regardless of our mental state as he did with him in spite of his depression and whatever how he felt god did not regret the gifts that he wasted on him because it was investment into his life and the future and the third way how we deal with things that god is helping us to find rest in him is by creating a special day so that we can clear our calendar and we are not under the tyranny of work appointments expectations and production now have managed for eight lessons without speaking about the sabbath but now finally here we are going to two lessons on sabbath number nine and ten as you can expect the lessons completely predictable.
