Life is busy, hard and stressful. I recently had a daughter, whom I absolutely adore and cannot imagine life without. However, between working outside the home and being a mom, (not to mention a wife, friend, daughter and sister-all the hats so many of us wear), it is hard to take the time to stop and take a breath, let alone an hour for personal time. However I am reminded of a verse from Matthew:
“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”. Matthew 11:28
“Come to me” Jesus tells us, and he will give us rest. How do we do that? How can we do that right now to allow the rest to start? The only way I know how to do that is to pray to the Lord and say, “Dear Lord, I am tired and heavy burdened, I call on you to meet me where I am today. Give me rest in your spirit, so that I may know the kind of soulful rest of which you speak. Amen”.
God hears you. Pray that prayer with me if you need it today. He will answer.
