This week on Permission to Pause we are thinking about what it takes to truly keep Pausing in God’s Presence a treasured RHYTHM of our our life.
We have been focusing on one of my favorite verses in the Bible, specifically the MESSAGE version.
28-30 “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.”
Nothing great happens in our lives without PURPOSE. Without INTENTION. Without COMMITMENT.
This invitation in Matt requires a few personal intentions: It requires getting clear about what “me/God” time means to you and sometimes explaining this to the people in your life.
Join me on the podcast this week to consider a few INTENTIONS that will shape your PERMISSION TO PAUSE!
Staying committed – not letting your inner gremlin talk you out of your time to yourself
Doing a daily inventory of whether you are taking care of yourself and if you are not, how you need to
Respecting yourself enough to take care of yourself
aking enough time to listen to yourself so you know what you desire/need
We have already established that accepting Jesus’ invitation isnʼt selfish – it is GOD respecting and spiritually, physically and mentally healthy for YOU and for those you love.
You can’t give out what you do not have.
If you want to share peace; joy; faith; hope; and all the fruits of God’s spirit—you first have to fill up in order to pour it out!!
