Keep On Digging

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

Sometimes I find myself going through the motions. Not just with daily life, but in my walk with Christ. Truth is, it’s ok to go through periods like that. I’ve found the more I stay in the Word and keep digging, the more God reveals to me. I love the promise that God will never give me more than I can handle. But sometimes I’ve felt that was baloney. It must be true, because I’ve made it through hundreds of difficult times. Looking back, most of those trials seem like no big deal now.

If you feel bored, tired or even burned out spiritually, keep digging. You could be really close to breaking through.

Father, thanks for never giving up on me. I’m going to do the same and not give up on you.
