Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:
When I invite you to bring all things to me, this is not a limited invitation. And those times when you have so many thoughts racing around inside your amazing mind, you find it almost impossible to know what to bring to me, bring me everything! Nothing is off limits and no amount of overwhelm is too much for me.
Jesus said it first … “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.”
Do you feel like you’re living freely and lightly today? If not, it’s time to bring me everything that’s weighing you down. Yes, you have responsibilities and there are certain expectations made of you but those things don’t need to feel like a lead-lined coat, being dragged with great effort through the day. That’s not what you were born for!
You think I don’t understand because I don’t have a mortgage to pay or chores to do or other people’s wages to pay or teams to lead? Look to Jesus before you try and tell me I don’t understand. He fed thousands, washed feet, kept a gang of twelve fed and on the right path, launched a global mission to save all of humanity. Don’t tell me I don’t understand!
The specifics of your life might be different but I know what it is to be overwhelmed. I understand pain and frustration. I am playing the very long game, practicing patience as I do so. You are known and understood, of that you can be certain, so bring all things to me, without exception, and let me show you how I’m moving!
