I seem to meet myself coming and going these days. I always thought I longed for the simple life, but I like being busy. If I’m not careful I will be so busy that the one thing my heart longs for the most will be put on the back burner.
I need to make sure I meet with Jesus everyday. Without that daily meeting and fellowship I get dry and hard and rushed and grumpy. But if I meet with Him first, then those rivers of living water talked about in the Word will come forth and I will be refreshed for the entire day, no matter what comes my way.
Oh beloved, that still small voice says to you and me: Come away with Me and sit awhile. He goes on to whisper sweet love songs in your ear: Beloved, Precious, Chosen, Redeemed, Secure, Anointed and Called. He will remind you of His Word, He will give you personal knowledge of His will, and He will keep you safe in all your ways. Better than a best friend and yet He is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother. Better than a spouse even and yet He says He is betrothed to you and He will be a Husband to you.
God loves you and He’s for you. Step out of the Highway of busy-ness and sit at His feet. He wants to wipe the sweat from your eyes and the furrows from your brow. Life lived with Him first makes all the other parts of life so much sweeter and more bearable. Watch as your life comes alive as you live first in the Light of His Glory and Grace!
Psalm 27:8 My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.”
