Come to me.

Matthew 11:28.

I remember in the past, life can get crazy between kids, school, job, traveling and many other unscheduled “events”. Now I am retired and life is crazy between grandkids, leading a Parkinson’s support group, traveling and other unscheduled “events”. He needs to lead and control my life and not the rat from the rat race. NO is a viable word I and we should contemplate more often. Jesus calls to us to seek His rest. Our pastor Dennis Papp at our Southfield Church in Channahon, IL said, “A need does not nesessitate a call”. Make sure your answer is your calling and not your plan. Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28. NLT. When life makes us weary and it will make us weary, come to Jesus and seek His rest. He will help us through our burdens and allow us rest. He will not take our burdens away but we can rest in Him. Dale, I do not have time to rest. Phones today allow us have our schedules with us all the time. Sometimes we need a big picture perspective. When we look at a wall calendar, we can see at least one month at a time. Sometimes we need to look ahead. And once we put the kid’s schedule with games and other activities we have no time for God and me time. We need to intentionally block off some hours for our time with God, spouses and family. Jesus wants us to come for rest with Him.

How busy is your schedule?

Want adjustments can you make today or into next month?
