I don't know about you, but I'm pooped! It has been a very busy week and I am in need of rest. Do you ever feel like both your body and your brain are tired at the same time?
We can often have a yoke to carry in life. Unlike the cows in the video, ours is not so heavy since we have Jesus. Also, that yoke or burden that we have helps us get stronger so that we can do amazing things in Jesus' name!
So what do we do to find rest?! Well, Jesus tells us that we can find rest in him when we become weary. So let's try it! We can find a peaceful place to retreat from the world. Maybe that place could be a fort in your bedroom, a hammock on the porch or under the shade of a big tree.
When you find your peaceful spot, make it special! Grab a little snack and drink, maybe a pillow and blanket, and then your bible or journal. Once you have your peaceful spot set up...🛑...now talk to Jesus.
Jesus is waiting to hear from you. He wants to know everything that is on your mind and unburden yourself. He wants to rest with you while you read your bible or gaze out at the view or even take a little nap.
Try to make this special time and rest with Jesus once a week, or even better, every day. We all have burdens, but sharing them with Jesus will lighten your yoke!
