Advent Devotions - Day 6

Luke 2:4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because hebelonged to the house and line of David.

Tis’ the season to travel. Some by plane, some by train, and some pack up the kids and dog and go over the river and through the woods to Grandma’s house. We go to the Christmas pageants at the school, to the choir recitals at church; we run to the stores, and rush to the office parties, the neighborhood get-togethers, the cookies exchanges and umpteen Christmas calender-crushers until we drop from exhaustion and holiday burnout.

In Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message version) Jesus says: “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."

Stop a minute today to breathe. Grab a cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate, and carve out even five little minutes to come to Jesus to recover your life! Take a moment to receive His gift today of the “unforced rhythms of grace”. Rest in the grace of our Savior.
