An Invitation to Rest

While I was planning worship for 2018, I ran across Matthew 11:28: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

I’m so thankful that Jesus recognizes the need to rest.

It seems so much of life is ‘do more, move faster, fit more in, be better, keep working harder and harder’. Then there’s Jesus’ invitation: “Come to me… and I will give you rest.” I hope you take this invitation seriously and receive the blessing of rest Christ wants to give to you.

As for me, I’m heading to Sarasota for a long weekend with my best friend and I am going to rest. (I’ll return to blogging when I return to St. Louis, and hopefully blog a bit more regularly.) Peace!
