To My oftentimes weary child,
When you believe the lie of religion that you can gain and maintain My favor by things you do by your own effort and ability, you are fighting against My current of ever-flowing grace and living water.
It’s much like swimming against the current of the Mississippi River. You can never win! You will always tire out and end up weary, discouraged and disappointed. Instead, Come to Me!
When you’re tired, worn out and 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.
Picture yourself floating on an unsinkable, indestructible raft going with the current on a great river. There’s no effort on your part— it’s easy and relaxing and enjoyable! Let Me take you where I want. Let Me live My life in you, through you and as you. Change your mindset from “do” to “done!” Relax and enjoy abundant life with Me!
