Time for another link-up with Lisa-Jo from Five Minute Friday. Friday is a time when we “write for five minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” Come join in the fun HERE.
I read this quote in a short devotional on Matthew 11:28 when Jesus reminds his followers that he is their source of rest. He is the solution to their weariness.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
I thought about this in relation to our word prompt today. If we dive in too many times without regular rest, the waters of life will eventually pull us under. We can make progress and continue swimming forward for only so long before it becomes necessary to stop and recharge.
Perhaps, the Lord is not asking you to dive in again right now. Perhaps, it’s time to come to Him and rest.
The coming to should always precede the going out.
It’s in the coming to that…
we become equipped to handle the unknown waters that stretch out in front of us.
we discover which direction we should be swimming.
we are given the strength and the courage to dive in and face any waves that come our way.
