“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28, NIV).
When I am tired, exhausted, overwhelmed, depleted, I go to Him for
rest. But I don't just go. I stay. I wait. I let go of all that pulls me
down and drains my heart and spirit. And I stay with Him. I stop all
that rushes my mind and disturbs my spirit. I go to Him because I know
He alone is my help and my restorer. He is my help in my time of need.
His presence is constant and sure, and I wait until He fills every crevice of my tired and hurting heart. I fine peaceful rest in His presence.
His rest is fearless. His rest supplies all that I lack. His rest is
complete, and is all that I need to complete my journey. I rest in Him
until He shows me it is time to go again....until my spirit sings with
His strength and purpose.
Whatever your struggle or pain or
heartache or want, rest in Him until you are strong again, and your
spirit is renewed. He will lift your head up again. He will raise you
up. You are rich in Him, and He will supply all your needs. You, too,
will sing again with His strength and purpose.
