There is that word again: REST   

Pastor Pete Wilson stepped down from his senior pastor role at Crosspoint this week. I imagine it was one of the hardest things he’s ever had to do. But in doing so, he set an example for us all. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says-  “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” Did you catch the “season” word?  

As we are coming into my FAVORITE season, Autumn, I am reminded that God set us a template for living when he made the seasons. And we need them ALL to survive.  Winters can be hard.  Slowing down and resting so that we may bloom again in the spring is something we all desperately need.  However, we all feel we should stay in productive mode in order for God to notice us and love us.  I mean, He needs to see us working for His kingdom, right?? No, not always.  I have recently realized that what God needs to see is us working to stay connected to Him.  And sometimes, our productive seasons can get in the way of that. At least for ME it does.

 May we all learn to rest in whatever season we are in today Lord. In Jesus’name, Amen.   #JesusCalling #MorningJournal2016
