If you stop sleeping, you’ll become tired.
I know, I know. Thanks a lot Captain Obvious.
There are few things in life more intuitive than the statement above. And yet, when we start to become spiritually tired, we often miss the signs. We lose interest in the things that used to matter. That song just doesn’t do it for me anymore. Going to church doesn’t feel like it’s worth the effort. I’ll just pray tomorrow when my head is more clear.
But just as sleep is a cure for tired people, the way of Jesus has a remedy for our spiritual fatigue.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?” Eugene Peterson translates in his popular biblical paraphrase The Message. “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life… Learn the unforced rhythms of grace” (Matthew 11:29-30 MSG).
Join us this Lenten season as we take a journey into a fresh understanding of spiritual practices, and learn how to rest in the Rhythms.
