We can be moving so fast sometimes that we lose our priorities and find ourselves overwhelmed, tired and in burnout. If we are completely results driven we can zoom past what could be some of the sweetest moments of our life.
We were made for communion with God, intimate relationships with others, and mission. Our mission is to love well. Loving well has less to do with doing more and more to do with being: being available, being attentive, being open, being kind.
When we lost our connection to Infinite Love Himself, Love Incarnate came to earth to rescue, redeem and restore us. Jesus poured out Himself sacrificially for us, so we could receive His endless life, love, joy and so much more.
As we receive Jesus we become righteous by faith not by our works, so that we can rest in the finished work of the cross. As we spend time waiting upon the Lord we will become energized and refreshed; we will find that our priorities align, our love flows more freely, and we become more and more present every day.
“He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts.” - Isaiah 40:29 MSG
