One Good Thing Every Day: May 1, 2013

“Our culture pushes the limits as far as possible and then pushes again. Even our churches seem to adopt the viewpoint that perfection (and boundlessness) is mandatory and attainable….The truth is that spiritual leaders in churches, families, and communities not only have human needs, limitations and imperfections (like their followers), but some have unexamined emotional wounds and conditioned misbeliefs that compel them to treat others (and themselves) poorly, sometimes shamefully…What helps me right now is Jesus’ gracious invitation to come to Him and rest.” from Joan C. Webb’s It’s a Wonderful Imperfect Life

John 16:13 NIV

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

 

Luke 12:25-26 NIV

Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

 

Matthew 11:28-29 MSG

“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.”

 

“There is no randomness about your life.” from Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence
