Give me a BREAK
Give me a BREAK
It's a little too catchy!
Isn't that what most of us feel like we need, maybe even deserve?
This week I have been reading a book about a guy who really deserved a break. And I am not kidding!!! His story is provokes anger in me, compassion, and a desire to DO SOMETHING!!! (review coming soon) How many people out there deserve or need a break?
There are times when we all feel like we deserve a break. If life, if only circumstances, people, God even ... would just cut us some slack. When you look around you, do you see people who maybe need a break? Life has dealt them a handful of tough situations and they could just use a listening ear, a compassionate heart, a friend?
Thankfully, God sees! He came to fill two needs.
- - a break from sin and hell. "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
- - a break from the soul hurt that exhausts us. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
He may not remove us from the storm - but He can be the eye of the storm - that place in which we can find rest and catch a break.
Maybe you know someone today who could just use a BREAK - a kind word, a note of encouragement, something sweet to brighten their day, a small act of kindness goes a long way.
Give them a break!
(and yourself too)
