Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me.
Look my way. Lift your gaze. See the compassion in my eyes. See my open arms. See my open heart … and come. Come to me.
Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
Get away from the crowd. Steal away with me. Find out who you really are. Find out who you were created to be. Live fully. Live completely … in me.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and learn from me. I’ll lead you beside the still waters. We’ll lie down in green pastures. I will restore your soul.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Keep your eyes on me. Match my steps. Move when I move. Stop when I stop. Do only what you see me doing.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
Dance with the wind. Move to the rhythm of my heart. No scheming. No striving. Simply embrace the naturally supernatural flow of my love.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
I know who you are. I know how you’re wired. My plans and purposes are custom designed just for you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
I want to be with you. I love to be with you. You were created to live and move and breathe in me. And in me … you’ll find the freedom to become who you really are.
So come away with me … move with me … dance with me …
And you will find rest for your soul.
(Matthew 11:28-30 The Message)

Love this Cindy – and the picture! Love it! That photo is what I imagine when I’m asking Papa God to take me to the green pasture and the still waters – to make me lie down and rest with Him. Thank you so much for posting this.
I know–I love the picture too. It was perfect! So good to hear from you, my friend. I miss you!
Do you have a blog. I call God “Papa” too!!!
Hi Robin, I doubt Christine is following the comments which means she probably won’t see this (especially since it is an older post). She is a good friend and, unfortunately, she doesn’t have a blog. It would be great if she started one, though, because she is a great writer! If she ever does, I’ll let you know 🙂
Love the interpretation. Abba loves it when we fall back into His love and unforced grace and live and breathe and having our being totally in him. Blessings 🙂
Amen–the best place to be! Thanks for stopping by and for commenting.
