“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)
 
Today I am finding comfort in these words of Jesus from Matthew 11.  I found them in The Message translation. Maybe the contemporary language is what strikes my heart the most.  Or maybe it is the invitation- can you see how many times Jesus uses the word WITH?  He wants me to be WITH him! 
 
If you are feeling lost, tired, worn out, or burned out today, spend a little time WITH Jesus. 
He’s inviting you closer. 
He’s inviting you to recover your life.

 

With Grace,
 
Pastor Daniel
