The Good Stuff

We only have so much time in our lives. I’m not just talking about big picture, total heartbeats in your life type of stuff. I’m also talking about the fact that there are only 24 hours today.

There’s only so much time that we have. And are very busy people. There’s so much we have to do. So many places we have to be. So many things we have to be about.

We can feel overwhelmed, tired, and give out sometimes. We can feel so give out that we want to give up. We can feel so worn out that we don’t know what to do next.

We can feel tired, hungry, and broke. Both physically and spiritually.

Listen to what Isaiah 55:1-3 says today:

“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; hear, that your soul may live; and I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David.

Today you don’t have to “work” for real life. You don’t have to “labor” for real water and real food.

Are you thirsty? Come drink.

Are you hungry? Come eat.

Are you tired? Come rest.

Today, don’t waste your time, your effort, your money, on that which isn’t life-giving. Come get the good stuff. And the good stuff is free.

It’s not found anything in life, but in Jesus. He is our water. He is our food. He is rest. He is our life.

Today, our life will not found in our labors, in work, in our money, in anything else. It will be found in Him. Today, find your life in Him.

If you are hungry. Angry. Lonely. Tired. Exhausted. Give out. Giving up. Beat up. Worn out. Hopeless. Cynical. Weary.

Come. Drink. Eat. Rest. Find life. Find it in Him. Don’t waste your precious time on that which is not life. Find life in Him.

He is the good stuff our heart desires. Today, may we find our all in Him.
