"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."
In the photo below, my dog is so completely relaxed, she fell asleep in the car sitting UP in my lap. That’s the way we should rest in the Lord — no matter what position we’re in, no matter what situation we’re going through, no matter how much pressure we’re under, no matter how stressed out we feel.
We’re all in the middle of a rat race. But when it seems like life is about to overtake you, just sit back and let Him handle things.
Notice, Jesus said, “Come unto ME ... and I will give you rest.” He didn’t say go to a friend’s house, go to the bar, or even go to church. When we need a break, Jesus wants us to come to Him.
Are you worn out from too much stress? Just go to Him. He’ll take it from there.
Whilet we will have many challenges in life, we are not meant to do it alone. Jesus is waiting to lighten our load and give us rest. All we need to do is ask Him into our lives.
Lord, sometimes I get worn out and feel like giving up. Help me remember You are always there for me - to lighten my load and give me rest.
