Matthew 11:28 (NASB) “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."It was probably the greatest advice I got that day and it made a big difference in finishing strong! The foreman simply said "take five!" - that meant we could all take a moment and rest from the grueling work we were doing. Today's Word speaks to us about rest and where best to go and get it when we are weary and heavy laden, it's God! As the sweat poured off our faces, we just sat down right where we were. With the words of the foreman to take five, each man just sat, no one talked, no one moved, we were exhausted from the heavy work we were doing. Life will have those moments, when we become so overworked, heavy laden, weary to the point of exhaustion, and it's then we need to step back, take five, spend some quiet time with God and let Him heal us, comfort us, nourish us to get up and keep going. Rest is not a bad four letter word, it is a comforting we can get from God, so let's not forget to rest in Him during these "not sure what's coming next" days! peace, tom
