If you’re reading this right now and feel super overwhelmed by all that life’s dishing you, I think I have the answer.
Get away for awhile.
With your Bible, a journal, some heartfelt worship music and an open heart, get away from all the noise and soak up… God.
“But I have so much work to do…”
Go on leave if you can. Or have private night/weekend sessions, with just you and God.
“But all my responsibilities. My loved ones. Who will take care of them?”
A basket with holes can’t carry water; an axe that’s blunt can’t chop down trees. You, dear friend, can only give so much when you’re full of so little.
You’re in for an amazing time, trust me. This is coming from someone who is emerging from a mini-period of rest with God. It’s one I hope to consistently have every quarter because it’s so needed. I pray you receive the peace, joy and courage you need as you bask in His presence.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matt 11:28-30 The MSG)
(Matt 11:28-30 The MSG)
“Casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. “
