Are you soul-weary?

Over the weekend I met with someone who was reading the book “Cycle of Grace” by Trevor Hudson.  It reminded me of a post a while back of mine – Busy, busy, busy and specifically Philippians 4:6-7 about not being anxious.

Below are a few questions  addressed in the  Cycle of Grace.  Questions I certainly must admit a yes answer.  This week I pray I make proper time for God and I will buy this book to learn what it says about being “soul-weary?” 

“Are you soul-weary?

“Do you struggle to make time for God in the midst of a packed schedule?”

“Or do you sometimes stay so busy doing things for God that you can’t relax and just “be”?”

“Jesus faced amazing pressure and overwhelming demands throughout his ministry, but he did not experience the burnout so common today among Christian ministers and laity. You can learn the rhythm of living that Jesus demonstrates, the Cycle of Grace, throughout the Gospels. The Cycle of Grace examines 4 components of a grace-filled life: acceptance, sustenance, significance and fruitfulness.”

About GettingCloserToOurGod

This blog is written by Todd Christenson. He was raised in Nebraska and currently lives on Long Island in New York. Though out my childhood, my family attended church. We prayed together at meals. I thought I was prepared for life. After college, I moved to New York City. Shy, unsure of myself, building an identity in worldly things, increasingly prideful, self-righteousness, a controlling nature. In 2013, God spoke through someone, suggesting I confess my sins. I did. I realized that every day, I’d been glorifying myself, not God. Today, God’s teaching me to have my identity in Him, only, my dependency in Him, not myself, being who He wants me to be, not the world, loving Him first, loving others as myself.
