When Jesus Bids You Come Away…

Credit
When your mind starts to feel like the news-feeds you read…
it’s time to come away with Jesus. 
When you start to feel like the walls around you are closing in, it’s time to come away with Him.
When opportunities are starting to look like ticking bombs, and the calendar like doomsday…
it’s time to come away to His safe, strong arms.
When all looms before you and threatens to steal your peace and lines drawn in the sand are looking like deadlines all about, it’s time to come away with Jesus. 
When you feel like you can’t keep up; you are falling behind in many things, and feel there’s no hope of catching up-it’s time to stop.
He’s bidding you…
come away. 
It’s time I come away with Him for a few days, and let Him refresh me with His grace, truth and love.
Praying you are able to do likewise!
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” 
Mark 6:31 (NLT)

 

May these next days allow you to draw closer to the Lord, God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. 

See you here on Monday, friends.

 “The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26

    The quiet of Holy week–to face squarely the bad, the good and the Hallelujah of it all. Yes, see you after…isn't that the best thing to imagine?

    Dawn, thank you for sharing! You're so right and I love that Jesus himself told his disciples to come away and rest. I used to get caught up on blogs and wasted time comparing my life (what a trap) but now I consciously disconnect – it's wonderful! I appreciate this reminder on such a poignant weekend. Visiting from Friendship Friday.

    Yes! This post reminds me an anonymous quote I heard a long time ago – “Jesus calls us to come apart with Him. If we don't we may come apart!”
