Rest

Matthew 11
28If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest. 29Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest. 30This yoke is easy to bear, and this burden is light.

Maybe you’re feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders right now, or perhaps you’re in the middle of something that is proving to be very difficult. You may be worn out either mentally or physically, or both, from carrying those heavy burdens that are mentioned above.

As a friend of mine and I discussed the other day: Being a grown-up is hard.

We all have a lot on our plates and life can get pretty stressful sometimes. Life has a lot of expectations and responsibilities and even things that are enjoyable can become part of the stress that we experience in our everyday lives.

These verses remind me that whenever things (big or small) start to build up, it’s time to look up. God will give us the rest we need. All we have to do is ask!

Have a great day.
