Rest 8.5.22

Rest 8.5.22

"28 Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)


Many of us are weary from the demands of life. We long for rest. We look for all kinds of ways to energize us. Let's remember what Jesus said, "Come to ME . . . "Our rest is found in spending time with Him. It is located in giving our burdens to Him. Perhaps we are running fast in the wrong direction!


So today, let's try to stop running. Let's come to Jesus instead and rest.
