Come and Sit With Me

I am extending a blanket invitation to everyone who views my blog to come and sit with me every morning at the feet of Jesus, where we will learn things eternal.  Things that will lead us on to eternal life.  That is my goal and I hope it is yours.  Please don't ignore my invitation, it means a lot to me to know that others are searching for eternal life along with me.  I have had viewers from all over the world and some have stayed by me each day and others come and go.  My invitation to you means that we are both or all of us are seeking life eternal together, and what greater goal could we have that life forever with the One who loved us so much as to die for us so that we might live with Him forever.

It's not complicated to sit at Jesus feet and learn of Him and from Him, is it?  To spend a thoughtful hour each morning when your mind is fresh from the burdens of the day, when you can welcome Him into your heart to spend the day with you.  No, it's not complicated, it is the best thing I have ever done or will do and I am inviting you to join me every morning to sit at Jesus feet and learn of Him and from Him.  I know many of you have been blessed as you sit with me, some of you I know personally and others are good friends of mine and still others I have never met, BUT, someday I am planning on meeting you in the kingdom of our God.  Will you be there?  I surely hope so.

Today, I am extending to you another invitation.

Isaiah 1:18  "Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool."  Is that a complicated invitation?  It is a wonderful invitation and a wonderful promise of forgiveness.

Matthew 11:28-30  Jesus speaking.  "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."  He is not just speaking to those who work hard, but our burdens could be mental, emotional, Spiritual, or physical, but they could weigh upon us heavily and if we come to Jesus, He will yoke up with us and carry them for us and give us the rest that we so much are in need of.  Oh, to be free from the worries and frustrations of life!!  Do you think that is a complicated invitation?  Oh no, it is a loving invitation to give them all to Him and let Him carry them for you and me and be worry free with no frustrations or cares.  His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  He doesn't lay heavy burdens on us, never.  It is Satan that does that and is always trying to weight us down with them.
Turn them over to Jesus and resist the devil and he will flee.

Hebrews 4:16  "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need."  Isn't that another wonderful invitation?  And it's not a complicated one either.  We don't have to be timid to come to Jesus, He says to come boldly to the throne of grace.  So don't be timid to come to Jesus, He wants to help us in our times of need and He wants to pour out upon us His mercy and His grace.  He is just waiting for us to come and sit at His feet to learn of Him and from Him how we can live a peaceful, fulfilling life in Him.  Nothing complicated about this at all.

All these invitations, even mine to come and sit with me at Jesus feet, are all simple invitations that anyone can do and you will be forever grateful for the mercy and grace and peace that we will find there.  I am finding more and more of His love gifts just sitting at His feet each morning.  Won't you please heed my invitation and come and sit with me each morning to learn of Him and from Him.  I am inviting you with a heart full of love to come and join me each day, when you have an opportunity.  You won't be sorry, it will not be time wasted.  I am always blessed, and you will be too.  Grandma Joan
