I’ve woken up more nights than I’d like to admit…..worried, churning, wondering if we’d pay that bill or how that child would make it or how we could we possibly make ends meet
That was just in my sleep!
What about the “Eat.Pray.Hustle” or “Pray.Grind.Repeat.” mindsets?
I embraced those sayings as a cutesy way to infuse God into ‘The America Way’…..
Do you think of what needs accomplished for one day and get into that cortisol, adrenaline-drenched “hustle” mode??
My dearest friend…..let Jeremiah 6:16 stir in your soul today…..
This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls”A seeking heart will find the ancient way…..
The way of security, grace for the moment, and assured victory for a Godly outcome that is only for your best!
If you are grinding and wrestling….you may wear yourself out eventually or maybe you try a new approachAsk and you will find “unforced rhythms of grace for the day”….
“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.”
That is the promise and the biggest obstacles standing between you and ‘unforced rhythms of grace’ are your mindset and embracing the “Hustle Badge of Honor”…..that’s the world’s way.
Seek the ancient way.
