Faith, In Christ, Receive, Rest

No More Manic Mondays

Do you remember that song?  If you caught the song title in the title of this post you are probably hearing the refrain.

“Just another Manic Monday, I wish it were a Sunday.”

Out of Energy

Is this how you feel as you approach the week?

Are you dangling from your coffee cup begging for more energy and a way to work things out?

Guess what?

In our walk with God we don’t have to wait for rest.  We can take it.

The kind I am speaking of is rest in His work.  Resting by laboring only to believe in what God has done in His work on the cross.

Once Jesus was asked the following:

“What can we do to work the works of God.”

Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.”

John 6:29 NLT

So are you having a manic Monday in the faith department?

Ask yourself this:

What am I believing?

What am I working so hard at that I just need to believe God about??

28-30 “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

Be still and know He is God Beloved.  ❤ Melinda
