Good morning all,
The word of the day is “wayworn.” Have you ever had one of those mornings where you just did not want to get out of bed? You know… you wake up and your sheets are just the right temperature, and your pillow has never felt so good. I can think of a few times in my life where I have been that tired. But, I realized that I had to, and still have to, keep going. I could only imagine what Jesus and his followers experienced in that crazy three years of intense ministry. At one point, Jesus knew that he needed to give a word of encouragement to some who felt like they were dragging a bit.
“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.” ~Matt. 11:28-30
My question is: what are the cares in your life that might need to be presented to the Lord? Sometimes we get so caught up in the stuff that needs to get done that we forget this gentle command from Jesus. My prayer is that you bring everything to him. It doesn’t matter whether it is something big, or small. Our Savior is great and compassionate, and wants to give you rest. The next time you find yourself tired, weary, and wayworn, allow yourself to step back and rest in God’s love.
Praying for you,
