For those who feel weary

Do you ever feel weary? … chances are you do.  How do we not grow weary in this life?  The continual going and doing and taking care of and striving for change and difference.  At some point, … I get weary.

I get tired.

And I ask myself … is it worth it?

I’m trying, but I’m tired.  And continuing to grow tired with each day that passes.

And I’m wondering … what if it’s not about trying?  What if it’s about resting.  In Matthew 11:28 Jesus urges us: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.  Resting in the One who doesn’t even have to try, but supernaturally makes it all work out for our good.  Life with Him is meant to be peaceful, restful.  Jesus continues in verse 29 ”  29 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. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Come to Him dear friends.  He is gentle.  He is humble in heart.  There, you will find rest.  Not like a cat-nap sort of rest, but rest for your soul.  Will you allow Him to have that kind of influence on your heart today?
