Talking with a friend one day. She is talking about how she tries...was trying because this was a bit of time ago...to show a Christ-like image, in her finances, her marriage, her parenting...you get the idea.
What does this mean? What does it mean to show Christ's love? To bring Him glory? What does it look like in my life? I so struggle. There is this side of me that wants peace, to live for God alone, to find satisfaction in Him. Then something catches my eye, my heart really, and I want to have that freedom of a fast car, I want to listen to that music that makes my heart, just roar really. I want the music that floods my being and brings every bit of my being into focus. Because that is what I lack...focus.
Is it possible to be whole? Is it possible to bring these two halves together and make a whole? Is there a way to sanctify this half of me that rages within?
I am weary and burdened and He says I just have to come to Him and He will give me rest. Rest for my soul. Aaron Shust sings this song "Come to Me" and I just want it to play over and over in my head.
Come to me,
all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
