I'm taking a sabbatical for a few days. It seems lately my outlook has turned really dark. I'm probably being perceived as pretty inward focused and 'high' maintenance. If I've given that perception, I apologize from deep within...'cause I haven't meant to be that way.
I've lost 'passion' for life and so many beautiful things it offers...servanthood, simplest and usually joyful things in life, etc. I need to find out where the 'Cinder' I know has went, 'cause the 'Cinder' you've been privy to lately isn't the 'true' me...simply the shell which carries my name right now.
I need to quiet myself and reconnect with God...rekindle the 'passion' I used to have for Him. Find and grab that joy and peace that's been inadvertently thrown away.
"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."
~ Matthew 11:28-30 (The Message)
