 “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.”

Matthew 11:28-30

The Message (MSG)

For this is what Adonai Elohim,
the Holy One of Isra’el, says:
“Returning and resting is what will save you;
calmness and confidence will make you strong —

Isaiah 30:15

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
In returning [to Me] and resting [in Me] you shall be saved;
in quietness and in [trusting] confidence shall be your strength. 

Isaiah 30:15

Love these scriptures...some of the well loved and well marked ones in my Bible. I'm right next to you at Holley's this week.

When your Thursday blog post publishes, «Louis» will link to your Lenten Devotion - and he has a Linky for Lent as well.

"unforced rhythms of grace" LOVE that.
so true. Beautiful picture that conveys the idea of perfect rest - found in Him.

I bet that is a beautiful place of rest in the summer time. It is beautiful now - it makes me want to walk faster. Thank you for encouraging me through your scripture choices to find rest through Him.
