It is Saturday as I write this, and I am waaaay tired. I’ve had a jam-packed schedule and last weekend I did a craft show that was really tough. It was 90s and humid and lasted two days and I got very very sick. So for that reason and a few others, I had to cancel a show I was supposed to be at today. I absolutely hate having to do this! I am someone that loves working and then also feels very blessed to be able to do this for a living.
But I got sick and it took me days to recover. Even today, I am not feeling 100%. All of this reminded me that the need for rest is not just important in our lives, it is essential. God knows this! The Bible talks about rest, and not just the physical kind. I think we can all relate when we are just exhausted in every way possible… mentally, physically, spiritually….
And so I starting thinking about this verse today from Matthew 11 28:30:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. ake 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.”
Here’s more on rest and what I’m doing this Saturday.
I hope your weekend is great!
