…I Will Give You Rest…

Matthew 11:28-29 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.
The things of our lives can burden us! Our hearts become heavy with the wear and tear of the daily grind. The result is that many cannot face the day without the help of some kind of stimulate or drug. Then to slow down so sleep can come at night they must take something to counteract what they have taken during the day.
The words of our verse for today are so needed by our society. We need to hear the bidding of God to come, so that he can give us rest from the business that surrounds us. Take a look at your life with its cares, anxieties and burdens. Do they make you feel warn down?  If so you are like most people that are around you. The world is just to complex! It is overwhelming.  We are fortunate that we do not have to cope in our own strength and abilities.
In the midst of the complexities of life, God is calling. He wants us to lay aside the burdens of the day and come unto Him. He has promised rest! He wants us to give our heaviness to Him so He can help us carry the load of thoughts, problems, and hurts that the world brings our way. It does not matter what we face, remember Jesus words…" With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26)
Keep Looking Up,
