SPIRIT WELLNESS : Learning the Unforced Rhythms of Grace
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
“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.” Jesus (Matthew 11:28-30 Message Version)
I don’t do theology well at all …not so sure Jesus does either, truth be told … In fact, I don’t think Jesus does theology at all. He came after all to free us from the tyranny of religion .. all of it.
The deep deep love of my Creator for me makes it possible for me engage in the deepest, most important love affair of my life with the One who knows me as no other can. This is Spirit Wellness. This is grace.
My deep sense is that the focus belongs on immersing in Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength … as you would the love of your life. Hold His heart dear. Loving Him so deeply and so fully that you would rather die than break His heart. Staying so focused on Him that how could you bear to separate yourself from Him?
Show me places within, the unconscious habits of thinking that block me from loving You with all of my heart mind and strength …So that I can fully be the Love that You created me to be in union with You … thank you for the grace that makes it so.
Eyes locked into Yours … Hearts locked in to each other … walking IN LOVE with You … into the Unforced rhythms of grace
