Matthew 11:28-30

The Message (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.”

 

Dear Father,

Each of us has a desire to rest in You and draw near to You. Lord, when we need a refreshing You are there. When we need to recover from the tough arduous times, You are there. When we need a time of rebuilding and restoring You are there. When we need a time of reconciliation, You are there. You are always there and I am thankful for that Father. 

I am thankful that you want us to be regenerated and renewed by the Almighty Power of Your Holy Spirit. The very beauty of all of this is that You Father WANT US. You SIMPLY want us. 

You want us to COME AWAY with You and be strengthened and embodied in all that You are. You don't turn Your back on us and You keep reaching for us. Even when we fall out of touch with You Father because of our own selfish ambitions, Your reach pulls us in. Your undertow pulls us closer and closer to You. No matter how far the currents drift us away, You never let go and You pull us back into a communion with You. Without this communion with You, we are lacking deeply and we therefore desire and know that You want us to Come Away with You. The best part of this is that it's never too late. It's never too late to start anew with You. Father You restore hearts, You bring about change in us to become all that You want us to be. You want us to Trust You. You want us to Trust The Cross. You want us to Trust the tomb that You broke through. You want us to Trust Your heart and hear from You. You want us to COME AWAY with You. You open up Your heart to us. And that is what amazing grace is all about.

 

Come away with me

Come away with me

It's never too late

It's not too late 

It's not too late for you

I have a plan for you 

I have a plan for you 

It's gonna be wild 

It's gonna be great it's gonna be full of me. 

Open up your hearts and let me in.

 

Will you Come Away with Jesus Christ today?

 

It's Never too Late-
