Matthew 11:28 NASB “Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."I just sat back! Today's verse speaks of coming to Christ and finding rest! Going from job to job to job was getting exhausting so when my dad called to go fishing, I took a day off. What a great day of just sitting in the boat and relaxing, I didn't even care if I caught a fish or two, I was there for a different reason. Rest is not necessarily sleep. Rest is taking a moment, a day, a week and stepping away from the burdens of life. Jesus wants us to come to Him, all of us who get weary and burdensome and He will give us rest. After taking the day off, I found that going back to work was better. I went with a renewed sense of purpose. When we have lost focus on the job at hand, maybe it's time to call out to Jesus and get that rest that only He can give?! Get some rest, you look tired! peace, tom
