Rest for the weary...


Recently, I've heard the words, "I'm just so tired!", from many different people. Everyone has their reason. Each one is different. There are probably as many reasons why as there are people and circumstances.  There are those who are genuinely physically depleted from lack of sleep and rest. Some have children that haven't been sleeping through the night.  Some have a grueling work schedule with long hours.  Some have a calendar bursting with obligations that leave them no time to rest or recreate.  Some are simply not sleeping well.

But then there are those who are more than physically tired.  They are deep down weary.  Again, the reasons vary.  Some have been through a long season of difficulty and trial.  They feel beat down and beat up.  Some are suffering from hope deferred and years of unanswered prayer.  Some have jobs and/or callings that require them to pour out their energy helping others.  Some are broken hearted with concern over a loved one's wrong choices.  Some are just bone weary from the everyday bumps and bruises that result from life in this sin-twisted world.

Whether you are in a place of physical fatigue or deep down soul weariness, and no matter the reason, Jesus offers us restrelief and refreshing.   (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, May 21st, at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)

  1. He certainly does give rest and reassurance when we are in his word. Rest from worry as he reminds what worry does, and assurances that only he can give. I've always been a worrier so this scripture is always a great one to read and re-read. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Ease and relief and refreshment...this is such a good reminder that God offers it all to us if we come to him rather that fight the battles ourselves.

    1. Yes! A good reminder for "I'll fix it myself" personalities like me!

  4. Giving it to the Lord. Sounds so easy, but it's sometimes so difficult for us to do - even though He shows us time and again how much easier it is when we give those burdens to Him.
