Give me rest

I struggle with getting rest for my body, staying up late, doing favors for friends, and trying to keep a schedule of my schedule. I’m always asking the person (s) to whom I’m talking to remind me to do them a favor.

God dose not want us to be so busy that we don’t take the time to hear him. I’m so guilty of that. Life is busy for me, and I would assume all of us. With working, home events, maintenance around the house and so on. We are busy people by our own demand.
What if you weren’t so busy? Wow! What would you do? Maybe pay attention to the things that make us happy. Don’t you think God intended for us to be happy and have a little rest? You wouldn’t run your car out of fuel and expect it to take you somewhere! We are well-oiled machines when taken care of, our bodies need a routine to follow. Eat sleep and a little exercise. God meant exactly that, for the scripture reads:

Mathew 11:28
“`Come unto me, all ye labouring and burdened ones, and I will give you rest,”

Imagine that! He wants to give us rest if we come to him. Lets look again:

Mathew 11:29
“take up my yoke upon you, and learn from me, because I am meek and humble in heart, and ye shall find rest to your souls, “

Mat 11:30
 “for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’”
Finding rest in our souls awesome! Now that’s the kind of rest I’m talking about. Think about it, if we fill our souls with him (the word) we are content, think of a time when it was just you and God in silence (maybe church) Wow! I know how you feel pretty noisy at my house. We really need to take time to relax and just listen for him, just speak with him. Putting a designated time everyday just for him. Doesn’t that just feel good and calming? Yea I know, awesome! Listen “for my yoke (law or obligation) is easy and my burden (task or service) is light” Study and meditate on the word and your burden is light……….Awsome!

Hope you all have enjoyed reading this as much as I have had writing it.
God bless and Shalom.
