Come to me

 

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 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. Come to me, Get away with me, walk with me and work with me.

Matthew 11:28- 29 (The Message)

 

 

Come

 

Remain in this moment,

A doorway of possibility

And newness.

 

inhale the delicate fragrance 

Of hope carried on the breath

Of invitation.

 

Recognise the immobilising inertia 

Of cynicism

And turn toward the call.

 

Know the thieving presence of fear

For what it is,

And walk on.

 

Feel the irresistible urge to follow

An untrodden pathway

Beyond predictability.

 

Hear the compelling word of welcome,

Generously whispered:

Come.
