Come to me…
This life here on Earth is but only a blink of an eye compared to eternity; yet it seems like it takes an eternity! Many times I have read in the Bible verses of being tired and weary, to which Jesus offers rest.
If this life was ment to be easy, God would not have sent his son to experience its greatness to the point of his suffering and death.
The holiday seasons remind me even more so of the hustle and bustle of being busy. Parties galore, shopping, family gatherings, the actual holiday it self, on top of our normal life itself as well. Its a crazy cake topped with a chocolate cover busy strawberry. Too many of us including Christians get overwhelmed and consumed with peganistic holiday traditions. We forget to even give time to the very one who is the reason for all your chaos this season.
Even Jesus took time away for him self to be alone with God, to recharge!
Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
As Christmas is over and a new year is coming, let us take more time to spend time with our creator. Pencil in this crucial appointment if need be. Gods rest, his peace, his turn to carry our burdens!
