Communicate and Act
“If we don’t communicate, we certainly can’t get much done and if we don’t communicate authentically, what we get done is less effective.” — Michele Jennae
Each day, Someone waits for us to meet Him. Ready to listen and meet us where we are, He holds space for us to join Him. Do I make time to come into this sacred space and time? Honestly, not every single day. And my life feels the impact of this.
Spending time in scripture, devotions, prayer, and recognition of God and His creation are forms of communication. As His child and creation, I can safely come to Him with the knowledge that He know my heart, my struggles, and my joys. Part of the beauty of communication is fully expressing each of these parts of me with God. These expressions are a voice that when shared become fuel for action.
Team Tuesday 12.28.21 Scripture
Matthew 11:28 NRSV Bible Gateway
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
In today’s scripture, we see the action called for is rest. After sharing and releasing the lonely grip of solely possessing emotions or knowledge, the gift of release allows for us to rest, renew, and regain a different perspective towards the situation we were facing.
As you face emotions, feelings, and surprises that may be uncomfortable, take them and share them in communication with God. Release your lone hold on your experience. Allow God to hold the heaviness so you can rest. Rest and be renewed. The ultimate teammate has your back. Seek Him!
