WE NEED BREATHING ROOM. #TheSpaceBetween

Breathing room is the space between your pace and your limit. #TheSpaceBetween

Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

GOD REALLY WANTS US TO FIND REST. 
HE WANTS US TO ENJOY LIFE.
HE WANTS US TO BE BURDEN FREE. 

What are you yoked to? 
-Work
-Addiction / Substance / Porn
-Relationship

It takes faith to put God first. 

Are you giving God your best? Or what's left?

Matthew 6:33 NLT

33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

JUST ONE MORE COULD STEAL THE PEACE YOU LONG FOR OR THE PATIENCE YOU NEED FOR THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE. #TheSpaceBetween

2 Timothy 3:2-5 ESV
2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.

WE WANT TO BE LOVERS OF GOD. 

2 Corinthians 4:5-7 NLT
5 You see, we don’t go around preaching about ourselves. We preach that Jesus Christ is Lord, and we ourselves are your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

WE NEED THE TRUE POWER THAT ONLY COMES FROM BEING YOKED TO JESUS!

Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
