"Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest." Matthew 11:28
It’s week four in our #heroofmyhome print series. As a recap, we’re giving you a fresh new print each week that we pray emboldens and equips you to lead and love with expectancy in your home – whatever that looks like.
This print and declaration comes together to make one wild statement: God will give me rest and He is big enough to give me rest AND use my work.
We’re drawing a line in the sand and then leaping over it, never looking back when we say this: Refusing to rest doesn’t make me a hero. Working myself to the bone does not lead me to worshipping well. I am not stronger than God or in more control than He is, so I will take His invitation to abide with obedience. I will come to Him when He calls and I will work from a place of His approval, His love, and trust in His ability to get it all done.
I will be the hero of my home by walking boldly into the throne room of grace and taking the mercy He’s promised me (Hebrews 4:16). I will rest with intention and integrity. I will not find my worth in my ability to work, but in His love and upholding affection.
Amen? Now, who needs this as a reminder in their kitchen/office/bedroom/
