 “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 (MSG)

For this is what Adonai Elohim,
the Holy One of Isra’el, says:
“Returning and resting is what will save you;
calmness and confidence will make you strong —

Isaiah 30:15

For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
In returning [to Me] and resting [in Me] you shall be saved;
in quietness and in [trusting] confidence shall be your strength. 

Isaiah 30:15

  1. I bet that is a beautiful place of rest in the summer time. It is beautiful now – it makes me want to walk faster. Thank you for encouraging me through your scripture choices to find rest through Him.
