“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 MSG)
You are an amazing God. Thank you for the peace that only comes from walking in your presence and learning to trust you. Thank you for being a God of restoration. I know that I can be strong-willed and hard-headed. Forgive me, Lord. Teach me how to walk with you. Strengthen my faith. Where I have been self-centered, shift my focus to You and Your will. I want to experience your rest, Lord. Help me to trust you. I want to know you intimately. Teach me to quiet the outside noise, lean into you, and walk in your peace.
In Jesus name,
