Breathing Room Week 4: Undisciplined Pursuit of More

Dear brothers and sisters, During this series, we’ve been talking about how life is a little better when we have breathing room. God has no limits, but we do. When we don’t have breathing room, we become very self-centered and self-focused. Our culture constantly pushes us to our limits, and we constantly have to fight for breathing room. That’s what we are trying to learn during the course of this series. We talked about counting the cost; coming back to Our Father when we are overburdened; living beneath our means with our finances; and today we are looking at a “heart” issue.

Sometimes in life we can so easily drift into periods where we are just overwhelmed, living at our limits or even beyond them. In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek
