November is the new December. The three or four week whirlwind between Thanksgiving and Christmas has now become six weeks. We’ve already been to three Christmas events. I look at my calendar. I listen to the announcements at church and I want to go back to bed.
Times like this are especially challenging. It seems if the pressure mounts to get everything done, I start having trouble getting anything done. I lose perspective, energy and focus, so I end up spinning my wheels.
Jesus says, “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 … Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (The Message)
Keep company with Him.
This is what I’m working on for the next few weeks.
