I don't know about you, but when I want to do something fun, I'll get up really early to get my work done just so I can enjoy my day without worry. My friends and I decided to spend the day together at the beach for a little rest and relaxation. I know that my steps are planned by God and He knew that I would need a little break, specifically for this particular day. It's a gift from the One who loves me more than any human ever could. Jesus offers us a place to rest from the burden this world has placed upon us. He tells us to trust Him and allow Him to guide us through the challenges we face. The yoke of this world is quite heavy with its rules to conform; if you don't you will be ridiculed. It was the same in His day! The Pharisee's placed undue hardships on their followers that were unintended by God. But, Jesus came! Through His teachings we can learn the right ways apart from the ways of this world. Go to Him and find rest for your soul.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
