Wow life is busy!
Matthew 11:28: Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (English Standard)
Right now I am going through a massively busy patch in life.. up very early and going hard till very late. And this morning God gave me the above scripture. How amazing! Here I am in the midst of a whirlwind of activity, every moment accounted for (I am typing this before heading off to run a church service) and God is telling me to ‘Come to me.’ Through prayer, reading the Word and worship.
And the greek for rest speaks of what happens when I stop, pause, I take a break.. not from staring at the TV, but stopping and pausing to pray, to read the Word, to worship. The promise of deep and awesome rejuvination!! I can’t wait!!
So today I am going to do just that, set aside an hour in the midst of my busy day to head to God and get some wonderful rest!! As an amazing friend of mine would say, ‘time to breathe in God’
Taking a break with Jesus… ahh can feel the peace now!
