Deepen Your Relationship With God

Deepen your relationship with God, and then share with one other person. Take five or ten minutes now to meditate, say a prayer, take some deep breaths and let this verse wash over you.

Matthew 11:28-29 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and focus your thoughts on the person of Jesus Christ. Don’t think about his invitation in the verse. Don’t even think about how tired you are or how he promises rest. Think about Jesus’ gentleness and humility. He has all power in his hands. He hates your sin, so much so that he died to break its power over your life. And you keep tripping up and stumbling, but instead of punishment or disgust, Jesus receives you with open arms. That is meekness. Jesus is the definition of gentleness. Spend time in the gentle presence of the Lord. Feel the beauty of his gentle spirit.

Don’t Wait

Don’t wait …
for a smile before you are pleasant to others.
until you are lonely before you recognize the value of a friend.
until the funeral to appreciate someone important in your life today.
for a better job before you start working hard.
until you fail to remember good counsel.
until you are ill to recognize how fragile life is.
until you are bitter to ask for forgiveness.
until you are in pain to believe in prayer.
until you have time in order to begin to serve.
until you are separated before you seek reconciliation.
for recognition before you start to serve.
until you are rich to be a generous giver.
for the other one to take the initiative if you are guilty.
for someone to say “Me too” before you say “I love you”.
until the day you die to give your life to the Lord!!!
