“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
God has brought me to this place for a reason for a purpose. I just have to learn to lean on trust Him. Let Him show me how to rest. Let Him help me to learn to live freely and lightly. That in itself sounds so peaceful…
As part of my journey into wholeness, I had taken up writing this blog. Along with the writing, I’ve done a great deal of blog hopping and visiting lots of great blogs, from mommy to business to simplicity.
You know the saying “the good is the enemy of the great”? Well, at this point in my life, my greatest pursuit needs to mental, emotional and spiritual wholeness. The quantity of time spent in pursuit of building a better blog and attracting a following, is taking away from time I need to spend in other healing and rejuvenating activities. Time I need to spend in prayer and rest, exercise and fellowship with family and close friends.
Therefore, I am taking a step back. I would never walk away from what I have already built and grown, but I am slowing the pace. I have to learn to just ‘be’. That seems to be a real problem for me. I need to learn to rest in God and be comfortable in my own skin and who He wants me to be.
I will still be posting, just not everyday. I may use this time too, to share some other great posts from some great writers in the bloggy world. I also have compiled quite a list of links in my research, so I will probably share some of that as well.
