Rest for the Weary

Description

Christ doesn’t always take us out of life’s demanding situations. Instead, He invites us to allow Him to help us handle the demands. Are you tired of the rat race?

“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.” - Matthew 11:29 niv

The idea that the pace of life seems to continually increase stress and worry is a universal concept. There seems to be no end to the demands on our time and energy. Are you tired of the rat race?

There is a solution. It isn’t one that offers escape from the demands of life, but one that guarantees rest in the midst of the rat race. Jesus said, “Come to me if you are tired and burdened. I’ll make your load lighter and help you carry your burden” (Matthew 11:28, paraphrase). Jesus offers us rest amid the fast pace of life.

Christ doesn’t always take us out of life’s demanding situations. Instead, He invites us to allow Him to help us handle the demands. He wants to face each day and each challenge with us. Walking with Jesus Christ daily and trusting Him for guidance and wisdom to handle whatever comes is the way to experience rest in the rat race.
