“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
– Matthew 11:28
|A lot of people are trying to prove themselves and trying to make a legacy and trying to be a hero, but you aren’t. You are learning to slow down and learn what the scripture says. Jesus says, “Rest. Come to me. All you who are weary and burdened.” Do you feel weary and burdened? Jesus says come to me if you’re weary and burdened and I will give you rest. For I am gentle and humble of heart. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me and I will give you rest for your souls for my yoke is easy and my burden is light. You can let go today of having to prove yourself to the world, or prove yourself to anybody. God’s proud of you and I’m proud of you, and you’re doing a lot better than you think. You turn your back to the world and turn your heart towards God, saying, “This is what I want,” and that is a good place to be. Child of God, you do enough, and you are enough.|
Thank you, Lord, for giving me rest. Because of you, I am enough. Thank you for being proud of me.
How can you build rhythms of rest into your life in this new year?
