You were made for More. More joy, more energy, more love, more grace, more forgiveness, more abundance, more freedom, more sleep, more happiness, more community, more belonging, more church, more Christ.
You were made for Less. Less stress, less anxiety, less busyness, less anger, less loud, less stuff, less loneliness, less grudges, less bitter, less shame, less guilt.
The amazing story of Christ is embodied with grace. Grace for others and grace for yourself. God doesn’t call us to get it all together before we come to Him. He doesn’t require us to figure life out, or quit our sinful addictions before approaching Him. He calls us to Him… just as I am. just as you are. Come.
Come in the quiet space. Sometimes that means creating just a small area of quiet. Just a few minutes to come to him. Come with our bruises, our cracks, our sin, and just lay ourselves at His feet. He promises rest. Rest, one of my very favorite promises.
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
God’s goodness is far beyond our comprehension. His grace unending and His mercy always fresh and new. I’m praying for you today. You are wanted and loved just as you are. God is patiently waiting to give you More. Take a few minutes today and look. What can you do less of? What can you ask God to give more of? He is a giving God and He has THE very best in mind for you. I hope you have the most amazing day ever.
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Matthew 8:30-31
