Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  Matt. 11:28

When there is trouble we pray for changed circumstance, brainstorm, budget, strengthen resolve, work harder, call meetings, Google the problem, or phone a friend. While all can be appropriate responses, what Jesus offers is rest, peaceful, soul-restoring rest. His rest shrinks problems, reveals solutions, and provides strength and perspective. Take a minute, or a night, or a vacation in His rest.

Lord, I come to You with all that makes we weary and everything I carry. Give me rest.
