Jesus says in Matthew 11:28 to bring our worries and concerns to him. He wants to bring me the relief I long for. He promises me that if I will come and lay down my burdens and worries, He will be faithful to bring me the rest I need.
In order to truly experience rest, I've got to first of all RETURN. Return to Jesus, the one who gives rest. Jesus gives
instructions on how we should find rest and He says, "come to me" (v 28). Jesus doesn't ask us to do the impossible. He asks that I simply come to Him knowing that He knows what I need. He is enough.
When I am in the presence of Jesus, I trust Him to REDIRECT me. He knows that I've been carrying a weight I was never intended to carry. He knows that my focus has been on the wrong things. He knows that I'm tired trying to keep it all together. I trust Him to redirect my thoughts and to place my focus where it needs to be.
How about you? Are you a tired mama? Do you do well at finding rest? What do you need to do to "come to Jesus?"
