“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

Luke 14:15 says “How fortunate the one who gets to eat dinner in God’s kingdom!” God has a plan and a purpose for each of us. Don’t miss yours because you fail to focus on what He has prepared for you and is equipping you to do.
