Come, Take, and Learn  

Come, Take, and Learn

Matt 11:28-30
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. NIV

Each Pocket Full of Quarter journey has a unique spiritual theme and focal scripture. I know God is never late but Iíve found Him seldom early. I prayed for a theme and was beginning to fret because God seemed silent. Finally, the Sunday before the journey was due to begin, I heard the still small voice via my new pastor, Dan Yearyís sermon.

The theme for this year is Come, Take, and Learn. The name of the journey is Pocket Full of Rest. The focal scripture is Matthew 11:28-30. As I travel, I expect the stories, challenges, and adventures to revolve around the three words, Come, Take, and Learn.


Jesus extends His gentle probing invitation to all. As I travel the country, Iíll invite people to come to Jesus. Iíll share inspiring stories of people finding rest at the feet of Jesus. Iíll seek the rest Jesus offers as together we meet the challenges of the days ahead.


Taking the yoke of Jesus may seem daunting at times but when we do accept it, we experience a power and peace beyond our wildest imaginings. As I travel, Iíll encourage Christians to seek the will of God and to obey. Iíll write stories of obedient Christians. Iíll get up every morning, ask for knowledge of Godís will for me, and do my best to carry it out. When I get tired or discouraged, I'll take the rest Jesus offers me and renew my strength spiritually and physically.


No matter how long we have been in love with Jesus, there is still more to learn. As I travel, Iíll encourage others to read and study the word of God, to pray and mediate daily, and to be faithful to their church. I commit to daily prayer, Bible study, and meditation and look forward to learning from Americaís churches.

So I invite you to join the 2007 Pocket Full of Quarterís journey and to Come, Take, and Learn. Come to the website to hear how America is coming to Jesus. Take the yoke of Jesus by praying for people Iíll be meeting and for the spiritual health of America. Learn from the word of God and the good and bad examples of the people of our great country. If you pass me on the road, stop me and take a quarter.
