“Invite Me In”
I heard this invitation come as a result of some deep thinking I was doing. Looking at life, challenges, illness of my mother, changes on my job, relational direction. I would tackle all of them individually, not necessarily systematically but it had to be and not ignored. Finding the where with all to do it could potentially become stressful and that was what I was trying not to do and keep up the progression of life in the process.
I sat at my desk and I heard in my heart, “Invite me in”. Such a peace and calm flooded over me. It was the simplest invitation and with such a sweetness. I knew everything in my life would be okay.
Earlier that morning I’d read Psalm 62. I picked it up again and it mirrored the result of my simply inviting myself to shake off the burden of doing it all alone but soliciting help from the solid rock of God who could and would really be able to help me through all of my life areas.
Here is an excerpt of that Psalm; when you are tempted to be the lone ranger… remember these words: “Invite me In” and respond so you too will experience the release to receive support and peace.
Psalm 62: 5-8
5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and my honor depend on God ;
he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge.
