“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.” – Mathew 11:28-30
It seems like fall is such a busy season for so many – the beginning of school, fall sports, fresh starts in routine, and so many other things going on. Sometimes when the calendar fills up, my mind fills up as well. The daily to-do list is long and my thoughts go into over-drive. And that’s even when all the things are good and positive – we all know how crazy life can get when there’s concerns, medical issues, relational problems and hey, let’s through a pandemic in there too.
I’m reminded today that even when I’m tired in both body and mind, my soul is craving what only Jesus and the Holy Spirit can provide – rest and peace of spirit. Friend, whatever your day looks like, know that Jesus wants to give YOU rest. You just need to ask him to.
