Rest for the Weary

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

How busy are you? Do you feel like there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done?

Even when you are on vacation…do you try to cram every single activity into your schedule? Many people have a difficult time slowing down to rest when life is going at a very quick pace.

Last night I was tired, worn out and grumpy. I realized the last couple of days had been packed with nonstop activity. So often, it’s tempting to grab the quickest comfort…a cup of coffee, a nap or chocolate! But those things only offer temporary comfort.

When I find my soul weary and burdened, scripture says that true peace, rest and contentment can be found only in the Lord Jesus Christ.

It’s in those hard moments when the best place to turn is to our Savior. He is waiting for us to sit at His feet and soak up his love so we can receive the ultimate rest.

Are you regularly taking time to rest in Him?

Blessings to you,
