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.
“I am a champion plate spinner…I have the wife plate going, the mom plate going, the pastor plate going, the speaker plate going, and the friend plate going…I have learned that the only way to negotiate all the plates that God has given to me is to get great at walking with Jesus. When I spend my time with Him, everything else gets put in perspective. Instead of panicking at all that I need to accomplish today, I really am peaceful. In fact, many times I have gotten up from chatting with God and discovered the answers on how to fit all the pieces of my day together. By giving God that time, He has seemingly given me more.
Religion can be exhausting. There is no way that you and I can keep all the rules…if we are burned out on religion, we just have to get away with Him. Only with Him can we learn the unforced rhythms of grace.”
