Your feet are tired of running, your knees sore from bending low, your hips weary from carrying the load.
Your body aches for stillness, your mind for tranquility, your spirit for harmony.
The breeze rustles the first leaves of Spring before it brushes warm against your cheeks. Your friend speaks…
“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
Breathe in the rhythm of grace . . . Breathe in rest.
