~ Come to Me ~
Jesus says in Matthew 11:28, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest.
I don’t know about you, but I have been laboring a lot these past few weeks and am for sure feeling overburdened and heavy-laden! This time of year is busy for all: getting kids off to school and sports, running here and there to find all the needed school supplies, grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking, cleaning and juggling work, alongside quality family time. This week brought some hard moments, personally when I learned of some dear friends who were affected with hurts in their lives, as well as another friend’s life altering sickness. All of this came crashing to a hault the other day when I read in my daily devotional the above verse…”I will cause you to rest.” Thank you Jesus for rest! I have been praying this for all those loved ones that God brings to mind, in this crazy time. Jesus is faithful to give us only what we can handle. He knows our hearts, our schedules and our often seemingly fragile spirits. We as women, tend to be the glue that holds things together. We often don’t ask for help and take on more than necessary, becomming very overburndened. Friends, don’t forget to rest. Give your burdens to the Lord-first thing in the morning, when the alarm goes off and before your feet hit the ground-take a moment and ask Him to carry you through your day. His mercies are new, everyday!
