What do you picture when you think of rest? Do you see yourself chillin’ in front of the televison? Sleeping in? Playing video games? To my friend Pete Hohmann, it is kayaking, serious, mile after mile of kayaking! Way too much work for me! Of course if I could do it Keira’s way, as seen in the photo, I would call it rest! Keira is my youngest granddaughter! I call her “Smiley”. Yes, because she is always smiling!
Sorry, back to my point. Yet in this hectic, hurry, hurry, go faster, faster merry-go-round we call life, God promises rest. Are you tired? Are you bowed over with worry, problems and fears? Run to Jesus and he will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 (NLT) “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
