God Is Present


Renewal begins now…and now…and now…etc.

(Listen to my song “I Will Give You Rest” by clicking HERE)


Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”


Does it seem like you are on a runaway train?

Life can get so hectic.

Schedules are packed.

Seems like we are always trying to prove something…achieve something…accomplish something.

Are we also trying to prove our worthiness to God?

Are we trying to earn accolades from our Creator?

Jesus said that if we know him…then we know God (John 14:7).

Did you ever see Jesus require worthiness for his help or attention? No!

God’s love is a free gift!

Relax. Life is not a contest.

Our egos hate that…but it’s true!

Jesus invites us to simply come to him and allow him to lift your burden.


Breathe deeply.

As St. Paul said: In God “we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28).

Accept the free gift of Grace and then rest in it.
