PAX Choice


For a couple years now, God has been trying to teach me to slow down and be with Him, and learn how to listen to His voice. When I resigned from my position, I thought I would be able to slow and be better at hearing God, but I found I wrestled more with restlessness than while I was working.

I have been disappointed in this season of restlessness: I have not been able to still my soul, to listen for very long –  only in moments – and understand this season of my life.

Meditating on Psalm 23 has been very helpful, as well as using the Pause App from Wild at Heart. But my prayer, even as I prepare to be away on vacation, is found in Matthew 11:28-30, particularly in the Message translation.

Matt 11:28-30 “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.” (The Message)
