Come unto me...

Jesus called for those that were weary to come and He promised to give them rest. Something that I have realized is that "rest" in God's dictionary doesn't necessarily mean inactivity! He said that His yoke was easy and His burden was light. So when we come to Him we are supposed to exchange loads...our heavy, cumbersome life filled with trials for His lighter load of peace, joy and the Holy Ghost. You learn this as you begin relinquishing the control we talked about yesterday.

When we are working for the Lord and not for others, the work does not burn us out but rather empowers us to get more of Jesus burned in to our hearts. Ask yourself today why you are doing what you are doing? Do you constantly feel exhausted? Is all the fun gone from your day to day life? Take a trip to the foot of the cross and lay your stuff down. Exchange loads with Christ and you will find that refreshing, replenishing rest that can only come from a relationship with Him. So this weekend, get some REST!
