“Come to me, all you who’re weary and burdened, and I gives you relaxation. Take my yoke upon you and be taught from me, for I’m light and humble in coronary heart, and you will discover relaxation on your souls. For my yoke is simple and my burden is mild.” – Matthew 11:28-30
“If I can simply make it to the weekend, I’ll lastly get to relaxation,” I inform myself. I look ahead to sleeping in and watching Netflix, however that form of weekend relaxation solely provides a short lived respite from the challenges I’ll face another time on Monday morning.
Whereas God provides us a deep soul relaxation that comes from an in depth stroll with Jesus, we’re usually dreaming about our subsequent break or trip. We don’t notice we are able to expertise religious relaxation even on a busy day.
Jesus provides us an invite and a promise when all our endeavors have worn us out: “Come to me…I gives you relaxation.”
All we’ve got to do is draw close to to Jesus and switch our hearts towards Him. After we ask Jesus to fill us with His life-giving Spirit and provides us the power and vitality we want for our every day duties, He offers generously. Higher but, He provides to stroll with us.

Personally, my worries tire me out even quicker than my work. It’s my worries that wake me up at 3:00 within the morning, robbing me of an excellent night time’s sleep. Typically I tire myself out carrying burdens my Savior by no means meant for me to shoulder alone.
After we make the selection to entrust our issues to Jesus, He carries them for us. We are able to stroll freely and frivolously, resting and trusting in His Sovereign, loving care.
