I’m still processing the end result of the Crush-Crushed series, so tonight we will take a break from that while I continue to learn what exactly should be taken away from those verses. I’ve often started these posts before, but they never seem to lead anywhere, so I wanted to at least verbalize the process. Perhaps someone else has some perspective for me, I would welcome it.
“Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble at heart.” Matthew 11:29
I am pretty tired of writing about peace. It is a burden, and it does take so much time to come up with something. I think I am closer this year to giving up than I have ever been, as so many things are going on that it is hard for me to focus on this one aspect of life.
Is it just one aspect though?
If I have peace, will it not overflow into all the other areas of my life?
If I do not have peace, it certainly effects all of the other things I am trying to do.
The Bible describes those who are unrepentant as enemies of God. We are not at peace with God.
However the Bible immediately follows that statement with this one…”but while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
While we were yet His enemy, Christ paid with His life to draw us back into a relationship with the Trinity.
So even though I am not at peace in this moment, the way is open for me to find it. The door has been forever kicked open, the veil has been torn.
