Refreshing

If you are weary.  If you are bone-tired.  Play this song.  Again.  And again.  And again.  Then then just one more time.

Run into His arms.  Get your refreshing.

Life is busy.  Even for people with a simple life like mine – life is hard.  Life can get you down.

I found out tonight that the greek word for ‘refreshed’ also translates to ‘I will give you rest’.  Which is the same as ‘brought to rest’ and ‘come to a pause’.  As the song says, can I urge you, to stop worrying, to stop stressing about ‘things’ and run to Jesus.  And then stop.  Pause in His presence.

Play this song again.  And then again.  Let it raise your spirit.  Focus on the goodness of Him.  Run into His arms.  We need to stop taking things on ourselves and carrying so many burdens.

Run to Him. This is what I am learning.  Leave my worries – just to fill up from Him and then go out and love people.  It is as simple as that.  Love people to Jesus.

‘Forever Reign’ from Hillsong Live (A Beautiful Exchange CD)

You are good, You are good
When there’s nothing good in me
You are love, You are love
On display for all to see
You are light, You are light
When the darkness closes in
You are hope, You are hope
You have covered all my sin

You are peace, You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true, You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy, You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life, You are life,
In You death has lost its sting

Oh, I’m running to Your arms,
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

You are more, You are more
Than my words will ever say
You are Lord, You are Lord
All creation will proclaim
You are here, You are here
In Your presence I’m made whole
You are God, You are God
Of all else I’m letting go

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign

My heart will sing
no other Name
Jesus, Jesus

Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign
