We begin a conversation about how we need spiritual, emotional, and physical rest as much as the air we breathe! First Shawna shares how we can fall into looking to people to give us the rest that only Jesus can give us—that’s why Jesus says “Come to me,” when we are worn out from life. Then Perry shares how the gospel frees us from the heavy yoke of religion. Religion crushes us with its unreachable demands. Jesus lifts us with his unquenchable love.
And finally Shawna and Perry talk about a conversation they had one day last week, while the songs played, that seemed really heavy to Shawna. It’s a compelling story to show that life always feels heavier when we haven’t gotten enough sleep. Get some great ideas on how to find a better rhythm for your life, today and all this week on Perry and Shawna Mornings.
