Breathing Room: God's Gift of REAL Rest for the Restless
According to one assessment, the wellness and spa industry is a trillion-dollar operation. In our fast-paced, drive-thru world, everyone is desperate for breathing room. Many are willing to spend hundreds of dollars for a few moments of peace. We've all been there, thinking All I need is some space to pause, reflect, and figure out what our next steps might be.
Whether it’s the beckon of competition, comparison, or a busy schedule and many responsibilities, we can easily spend our days simply trying to keep up. Yet God always says, "You were not created to live like this."
In fact, we know that from the earliest days of Christianity Jesus invited His followers to stop, rest, and revisit the pace and priorities of their lives. This is not a modern problem - it is a human problem. Can you imagine the faces of those who first heard Jesus say,
For what does it profit a person to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? (Mark 8:36)
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... (Matthew 11:28,29)
Over the next few summer months God's invitation is clear. Might He be saying to you: "Come and let Me teach you have to create breathing room in your life. Let Me help you learn to slow down so you can listen to My still, small voice. Come and find rest as you learn to live by a different set of rules where you will sense My love in new ways."
Don't just think about it - make it a priority to join us as we learn together.
