109

Matthew 11:28 (MSG)

“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 rested.  There were no challenges draining my life source.  There were no claws scratching at my innards.  There were no lingering aftershocks from the work week.  I simply rested.  I am still resting as I write this post.  There were no fires requiring a downpour of latter rains.  I simply rested.  Recounting it all now, my mind remains in a state of rest.

 

I was never a loud worshipper.  I recall my first full-out corporate worship experience.  I remember being extremely taken aback by the outcries all throughout the sanctuary.  I used to wonder if it was just me.  I do not anymore.  I am a silent worshipper.  Even now, I cannot recall a true uncontrollable outburst of public (corporate) worship.  There was one time, I came close. However, even then, I closed myself off from the corporate experience.

 

I speak of worship, because, my day of rest was all about my idea of personal worship.  Without any musical instruments, gospel CDs, or even Pandora, I simply worshipped my Creator.  Unable to fully explain this experience, I offer the following.  As promise, it all moved into Easter Sunday with me renewed to fight another day.

 

Blessings,
