teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name... psalm 86:11

love... a day late...


There have been many contemplations this week regarding what love is and what love looks like in our lives…

To me, this is love…

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out? 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

No hoops. No expectations. No demands.

Just an invitation to be with One who loves unconditionally. Regardless of where we are or where we’ve been… regardless of who we are or who we’ve been…

True love offers an invitation into grace… into learning to live freely and lightly…

And for that, I am thankful.

  2. This is so what I needed to read this morning. Learning real rest, unburdened. Because these last few days I have felt so tired and burned out. Thank you for your encouragement.
