“Elijah was afraid and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there, while he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. ‘I have had enough, Lord,’ he said. ‘Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.’ Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep” (1 Kings 19:3-5).
Autumn has always been my favorite time of year. I love the crunching leaves and the cooler temps. The air seems to have the scent of brisk. It’s so refreshing. I love the colors and the flannel and the bonfires.
Lately I’ve come to love autumn for an entirely different reason.
Maybe it’s because I can get out less, or maybe it’s because I have such a hard time getting any real sleep. For whatever reason, I am recognizing fall as an engraved invitation from the King of Kings, meant for all creation.
It’s an invitation to rest.
Will you accept this invitation?
