Lighten the Load
The things we carry are heavier than we think. They can weigh us down and prevent us from living the life Jesus has for us. Most of the time we don't even realize how heavy our burdens really are.
Join us this week as we dive into Hebrews 12:1-3 (MSG and NIV) and ask Jesus to speak in to the things that are heavy in our life. It's our hope that we can lighten the load together as we chase after all that Jesus has for us.
Settle and take a few deep breaths.
Then, invite God in to this moment through prayer.
Slowly read Hebrews 12:1 MSG
Take a few minutes to contemplate what you have just read.
Ask God these questions:
- God, where is there unaddressed sin in my life?
- God, what is holding me back from intimacy with you?
Now, be still and Listen.
Finally, take a few minutes to process what Jesus is saying by journaling.
The Daily Rhythm
How does it work?
Our rhythm is designed to help you engage daily with Jesus and listen for his voice.
Each week we will dive into a passage of scripture, slowly unpacking its meaning over five days. Our goal is to let these sacred words wash over us and transform our souls.
We do this by engaging in five key spiritual disciplines - settling, prayer, reading scripture, listening and journaling.
Some could call this a "spiritual routine". But we believe it's so much more. Over time our daily rhythm has produced in us a connection to the Creator that Jesus talked about - one that is free and light.
Following the ways of Jesus has changed our life and we hope that it will change yours. Join us as we seek Jesus well.
A Deeper Look
There are five elements to the daily rhythm: Settling, Prayer, Scripture, Listening and Journaling. Each require some practice and discipline. Over time they create a rhythm with Jesus that transforms the soul.
Take a Rest
The ways of Jesus are slow, not fast. From the very beginning, he has asked us to set aside a day a week to remember his faithfulness. He is the provider and his provision does not depend on our efforts.
Sabbath is a weekly rhythm to intentionally take a break from the noise and to rest our souls. It's the way God designed us and essential to following the ways of Jesus.
We believe that gratitude is the gateway to joy. If we want to live life fully, we must learn to see things from His perspective. Take time to remember the faithfulness of God.
