The Rhythm of Graceful Rest

The Message translation of Matthew 11:28-30 tells us …
“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.”

John Mark Comer says this …
“People all over the world – outside the church and in – are looking for an escape, a way out from under the crushing weight to life this side of Eden. But there is no escaping it. The best the world can offer is a temporary distraction to delay the inevitable or deny the inescapable.

That’s why Jesus doesn’t offer us an escape. He offers us something far better: ‘equipment.’ He offers his apprentices a whole new way to bear the weight of humanity: with ease. At his side. Like two oxen in a field, tied shoulder to shoulder. With Jesus doing all the heavy lifting. At his pace. Slow, unhurried, present to the moment, full of love and joy and peace.

An easy life isn’t an option; an easy yoke is.”
~The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

Yoga

Inhale Grace

Inhale ~ grace;

Exhale ~ grace

Allow His grace to flow to others around you.

You cannot give what you do not contain.

You cannot pour from an empty cup.

Find sacred stillness on your mat.
