(re)set: to change the reading of often to zero


God said, “My presence will go with you. I’ll see the journey to the end.” (Exodus 33:14 The Message)

Often I dream about carefree days. No responsibilities. The freedom to just take a whole month off for some much needed R&R.

Today in  Jesus Calling, I read these lines: “You are among these weary ones, who are like wounded soldiers needing R&R. Take time to rest in the Love-Light of My Presence. I will gradually restore to you the energy that you have lost over the years.”

Often life seems to be going from zero to 110mph in seconds.

Today, Jesus calls me to reset. To change my pace from often to zero. To take the time off. So for the next month, I am accepting the invitation for rest and recuperation. Some good old fashioned rest and recreation is just what I need.

 “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.” (Matthew 11:28-30 The Message)

Linking with Jesus today! Be back in a month or so . . .

Also linking with The Sunday Community, Sunday Stillness and Still Saturday

I will be posting my Making Manifest posts on Thursdays at my other blog for the rest of May.

    Praying for your rest, refresment, and revitalization. I love The Message version of one of my favorite passages of Scripture.
    Enjoy your time with the Lord.

    1. Lynni- The next month has opened up for me to observe a modified radical sabbatical…something much needed when you experience loss of a loved one or any major transiton really…Thanks for your prayers!

        I am so glad that God has provided this healing time for you, Kel. Sometimes people either can’t or don’t observe it, especially when they lose someone, it seems. I’m so glad that God is tenderly providing, and I will pray for the beginning of your healing journey.Muchlove

  3. Hey Kel, what a great word. By the by, the link you inserted for readers to look at your posts for Making Manifest didn’t work…. it gets me to Nourishment for the Soul but there’s nothing there. I’d like to keep up,so I wanted you to know.

    “Linking with Jesus”. I love it!

    1. Jody- Linking with Jesus is the only way to LIVE! I fixed the link…let me know if you have anymore problems…my other blog is at
