Ready, Set, Renew

God has built certain RHYTHMS into our lives so that we come face to face with our frailty and God’s sufficiency. He graciously draws our attention to the weakness in our lives so that we will look to him for strength. Think about the normal patterns of life that point to our need for renewal.

  • 60 to 100 heartbeats a minute

  • 12 to 20 breaths a minute

  • 2 to 3 meals per day

  • The morning and evening cycle of activity and rest

  • The weekly cycle of work and Sabbath

  • The monthly cycle of the moon that grows and fades

  • The yearly seasons of Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter

Each of these RHYTHMS remind us of our need for REST, RENEWAL, and REFRESHMENT. It’s a RENEWAL that can only be found in the life-giving fountain of God, through the Scripture and through the Spirit.
