Find Rest

Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)

28-30"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."

God's way is:

Not demanding but delightful

Not tiring but refreshing

Not frustrating but peaceful

Not restless but restful

OH my goodness. Every blog I visit has a message that I feel is just for me. THANK YOU for this simple, yet POWERFUL post Tammy. Scripture is anything but simple though as we know.
I read on Lysa T's comments that you are going to be sharing your story at your church. E-mail me any specifics I need to pray for, otherwise I will just lift you up that His message be delivered once again through you.
love you,
