“Are you tired? Worn out?…… 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…..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.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
As we come to the month of August in this strange time, many of us may be feeling despondent and tired. What is often a month of anticipated holidays and family time once again seems to be waiting with disappointment up its sleeve. Uncertainty seems to dominate our plans and the headlines.
But we worship a God who promises us a way of life based on grace and the freedom that it brings.
We would love to encourage you to use August this year to Reconnect with God. The intention is not to invest time and energy we might not have, but to come to Jesus just as we are and ask him to meet us in that place.
