God said, “My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.” (Exodus 33:14 The Message)
Often I dream about carefree days. No responsibilities. The freedom to just take a whole month off for some much needed R&R.
Today in Jesus Calling, I read these lines: “You are among these weary ones, who are like wounded soldiers needing R&R. Take time to rest in the Love-Light of My Presence. I will gradually restore to you the energy that you have lost over the years.”
Often life seems to be going from zero to 110mph in seconds.
Today, Jesus calls me to reset. To change my pace from often to zero. To take the time off. So for the next month, I am accepting the invitation for rest and recuperation. Some good old fashioned rest and recreation is just what I need.
“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.” (Matthew 11:28-30 The Message)
Linking with Jesus today! Be back in a month or so . . .
I will be posting my Making Manifest posts on Thursdays at my other blog for the rest of May.
