To My Weary Friends


To my weary and tired friends…

 “Jesus said, "come to me , all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” - Matthew 11:28

As much as I'd love for it to, this rest doesn't mean sleep, a good nap or nights rest, or that something to magically gets taken off your to do list.  (sigh)  in fact it means something much more fulfilling.  It means peace of the heart. It's the complete love Jesus promises us, it's the healing of the soul. When we seek God, study him, get to know him, everything gets put into perspective. It all becomes just a little bit easier to handle. His word, his voice gives us the tools to conquer all situations. Through a deep and continual relationship with Christ, he releases you from those burdens and removes the yoke. A relationship with God changes meaningless, wearisome toil into spiritual productivity and purpose.

So today my tired and weary friends, I pray you find time today and every day to let God show you His love and peace. Let him be your daily renewal.
