I Will Give You Rest

Matt. 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

 

I am just so tired!!  I have said these words many times in my life. Sometimes it is just simply from being physically tired. Other times from mental, emotional and yes even spiritual tiredness.
 
The last few years have been a time of great spiritual growth for me. But, to be truthful there have been many times when I was extremely spiritually worn out.
 
 
But, the above scripture reminds me that if I just go to Jesus He will give me rest!
 
No matter what the troubles, burdens or trials of our lives are we can rest in HIM!
 
1 Peter 5:7 tells us to cast all our cares over on Him because He cares for us. But, we MUST truly cast them (not just toss them) at His feet and NEVER pick them up again! True rest will only come when we do this!! 
 
My prayer this week is that we will REALLY cast our cares on Him so that we can find the rest that only Jesus can give!!!

  1. I REALLY needed to hear this today Beth! With my mom in the hospital I am physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually tired! My family is making decisions that is heart breaking to us. Our Gran has always taken care of the entire family. We have never had to be concerned about her. I know God has already healed her!!! We will take one day at a time and REST in the Lord!
