Rest

But I don't have to feel this way......there is a solution.

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

He calls out to people who are running in circles, weary from trying to be all and do all, burdened by the effort of living in this broken world by our own inadequate resources. He invites us to come to Him and learn from Him. That's where we find rest for our souls. I really want to dig deep and explore this aspect as I focus on this one little word......

Look here for more about my word

Oh, Marie! How well I know what the treadmill feels like! I think I've actually been able to get OFF it lately! Hoping you will too!
