sunday 8.10.08

we had a great church service today. our pastor has been teaching on Jesus' response to the commandments. this week was number four. it has been so good to take a look at the commandments from a different point of view. the past year has been so difficult. we feel like we have just been pummeled. and just in the past month or so have i felt like i can really rest. so today was a fitting message of how i need to stop and rest. to take my mind off of all the crap that has been so overwhelming and realize that Jesus is by my side - always.
Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
"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."
