Finding Rest in a Weary World
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11: 28, 29
Do you ever find yourself weary from the road God has asked you to travel? I certainly do. As I sit and type, I’m experiencing a fresh dose of weariness. Wondering if God really called me for the position He has placed me in. Confused as to how I am going to make it. Anxious about all my next steps, and weary from the attacks of satan trying to steal, kill, and destroy everything God has built around me.
Friend, if this sounds like you, I have a blessed word of encouragement for the both of us. When we think the answer to all our problems lies in our fighting these daily battles alone, creating our own way, (because surely no one else can help us,) and manipulating the situations to keep things in our favor, our God whispers, “Sweet child, you have this all wrong. Stop for just a moment, and read My Word. I have something I want to tell you.” Can you hear Him? In a world that says the only way to win is by fighting, God says, “Rest! Come to me and rest. Get rejuvenated, and try doing it My way this time.”
If you are in the midst of your struggle, whether it be weight loss, a financial burden, a relationship that is on the verge of destruction, or deep pain and fear regarding a loved one’s addiction, let me encourage you today. Before you lift your weary head to face another battle, take a few precious moments to rest in God’s loving arms for just a little while. Ask Him how He wants you tp approach your situation from His perspective. His Word promises that He is gentle, and humble, and that He will never leave or forsake us. Sweet and precious friend, we need rest for our weary souls and a fresh perspective from our loving father.
Today marks a new day. A day that you can choose to take your burdens to Jesus, offer them up, and rest in His arms to regain your strength, or you can go back to your battle weary and worn down, feeling alone and afraid. Which path will you choose?
Me too! I’ll meet you at the foot of the cross, sweet friend! Have a beautiful and peace filled day! So much love, Julie
