Living in Rhythm With Life
The Semi-Circle, the second shape in the LifeShapes series, challenges us to order our lives according to the way that Jesus taught his disciples.
I have seen and worked with many Christians who are so busy doing for God that they have nothing left to give. Sadly, in our busyness, we end up damaging the very relationships and work we are trying so hard to maintain. Despite all our effort, our reach is ineffectual and unproductive. Why? Because we are exhausted and burned out. How long before we close our doors forever?
The rhythm of our lives (perpetuated by our culture) is completely opposite of the rhythm that God designed for our well-being. It is crucial that we rediscover God’s rhythm for mankind. The Semi-Circle, the second shape in the LifeShapes series, challenges us to order our lives according to the way that Jesus taught his disciples. As disciples of Jesus, we need to rediscover from Scripture how to live fruitful lives of balance: work from rest, rest from work. When we do, we’re overjoyed to discover that God takes over. No longer stressed and overwhelmed, life falls into place in a wonderful new way.
