I JUST WANT TO SWIM UNDERNEATH A WATERFALL!  My heart screamed loudly, as life’s demands and conditions pounded harshly at me.  I was BURNT OUT and craving a vacation, but for the time being, my life was not on The Road to Hana!  

Can you relate?  Sometimes we JUST NEED A BREAK!  We need a breather from it all!  Our work, our worries, our responsibilities.  We need a change from the mundane, a relief from our titles, our relationships, even from ourselves!  

Our soul thirsts for a deep, quenching refreshment of rest and revival!   It longs to be doused, drenched, evoked, invigorated, moved and truly AWAKENED to the fullness of life in the Spirit! 

So what are we to do when life doesn’t always provide this cascade of renewal?

We find that soul soothing rest in God through His Son Jesus Christ.  It is through a relationship with Him (John 14:6) that we enter into the curtain of The Waterfall.

Jesus is our Living Water who refreshes our souls.  Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest.  [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]  Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find REST (RELIEF and  EASE and REFRESHMENT and RECREATION and BLESSED QUIET FOR YOUR SOULS.)  Matthew 11:28

That my friends sounds like a vacation!  God is that vacation our soul so desires!

No matter where you’re at in your day, whether you find yourself to be overwhelmed or underwhelmed by this world, you can dive into the expanse of His refreshing, life giving, soul cleansing Presence!

God invites you to vacation in His splendor. –Max Lucado 

He is everything our soul desires and craves in a sabbatical!

He knows you, He knows what you yearn for right now, in this very moment and He is your Provider.  He is your Rest, your Peace, your Strength and your Song.  He is the Compassion, Passion and the Companionship we so long for.  He is our greatest measure of joy, pleasure and leisure!

No matter where you are at, whether it’s a stressful job or under a mountain of laundry, call on Him!  Dive into His depths of Grace!  Plunge into The Waterfall and have yourself a vacation!  It’s fully paid for!

Cool off from the heat and harsh effects of this world and then, when you’re good and ready, step back into your life, refreshed and renewed!

God has a great plan for you and He wants you to enjoy the ride to the Fall!  (John 10:10)


Enjoy some Waterfall tunes!
