“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.”
Are you busy yet?
Has Christmas caught you unawares or left you feeling like you we had more hours in a day, more days in the week. or simply that we could just turn the clock back to November?
Well, I don’t know about you, but that is how I am feeling today. Swamped would be a good word to describe it. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas and I love all the plays,
It is one of my favourite times of the year…but it also seems to be incredible full and burdened. But when I read these few verses I suddenly realised what I was missing.In all the flurry of Christmas I had not stopped to hear the words of Jesus as much as I should have.
I have been doing it by my strength and my will and my determination.
But Jesus says - when you are weary and burdened come and find rest in my presence.
Christmas should actually be a time of rest - a time of reflection - a time to reconnect to the one true story that really matters
Jesus is moving in, coming to live with us - coming to save us.
So today whatever is in your day, make sure you take some time to stop, read the words of Jesus and talk to him in prayer.
Go on - try it I dare you….it will make a difference.
