“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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.” Matthew 11:28-30
Do you need rest? Do you need someone to lean on? I do. It has been a busy Fall (can you believe its mid-October already?). Our school students are deep in their studies as well as after school activities, weekends are packed, the stores are already putting out Christmas decorations, and Thanksgiving is around the corner. Things are moving too fast.
On top of this are the many people having medical issues, tests, job stresses, family tensions and the rest. We all need rest.
Fortunately, the Lord offers us that rest. No, it may not be an extra night of sleep, but consider this; can you take 15 minutes today? Just 15 minutes of silence, 15 minutes of meditation, 15 minutes of sitting in the Lord’s presence. Get in a comfortable place, shut off the phone and other distractions, read this scripture slowly, breathing the words in and out and then ask Jesus to give you that rest. You will be amazed at how just 15 minutes can change your day.
