Can I Get Some Rest?

This week I am answering a question that is personal to me right now. Does God offer rest amidst our busy schedules?

The past few weeks have been insanely crazy for me – a storm of unforeseen events that has had my husband and I sleeping a couple of hours a night and running like chickens with our heads cut off. We have juggled 100 things and somehow managed to keep most things afloat, however three separate huge things came up that were completely beyond our control that had the power to make huge negative or positive impacts on our lives. Exhausted and feeling hopeless I cried to God.

When I quieted the long to do list rattling continually off in my mind’s corridors and the overwhelming stresses that abounded around me, the verse God whispered in His still small voice was Matthew 11:28-30, “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.”
