“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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)
It's coming to an end . . . another school year! Happiness for some . . . tears for others. Kids excited . . . parents relieved . . . teachers feeling accomplished.
Yet we all are somewhat weary . . . worn out . . . tired . . . needing REST!
In this physical state, Jesus welcomes us. He also welcomes our weary bodies, but also our worrisome hearts and our anxious spirits.
You don’t have to clean yourself up to come to Jesus fully rested and Just COME!
I may be able to imagine what you are going through right now — trials, suffering, heartache, pain, illnesses within your bodies or a close friend or family member. But even if I cannot relate to your struggles, it’s not too big for God. His grace can cover it, and your heart can be made new. In those times when I felt like I was drowning, I thought God was off in a distant land. Later I realized that’s when He is most near.
