“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11: 28
Are you tired? Weary? Worn out? Burned out? Struggling? Burdened? Are you carrying a heavy load in your life? Jesus offers a cure for your weariness. His gentle calling says, “Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28 – 30MSG)
Whether you are carrying burdens of guilt or a heavy load of life circumstances, Jesus promises to give you rest. The type of rest that Jesus promises is love, healing and peace with God, not necessarily the end of all our problems. God’s divine rest provides a feeling of peace that is beyond human understanding. Jesus lifts the cares and troubles of everyday life off of our shoulders and bears them for us. Answer His gentle call and allow Him to bless you with His brand of rest for your soul.
Truly my soul finds rest in God; My salvation comes from him. Psalm 62:1
