It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly to this blog, but I hope to remedy that in the weeks to come this summer! So here are some deep thoughts with Calvin and Hobbes:
What do you do when you have a bad day, a hard day, a long day, or an exhausting day? It’s easy in today’s fast-paced world to get overwhelmed, stressed out, frustrated, even to the point of depression and discouragement! The answer is not to go grab a ‘cold one’ from the fridge. No, there is a better place you can go to find joy, peace and hope.
His name is JESUS.
The Bible says, “But those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31).
So if you’re getting weary and feel like giving up, chances are you’ve neglected waiting on the Lord. Spending time with Jesus in the secret place of prayer. Meditating on His Word. Being in His presence.
So hear the gentle voice of Jesus calling you to come back to Him, to get alone in your prayer closet until you’re not alone any more, and abide in His love. In His presence there is fullness of joy and a peace that passes all understanding. Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28).
Take a moment and listen to the words to this song by Chris Tomlin and may they encourage you to rise…
