I’m having one of those days where I can’t get going. I’m sure it will get better as the day goes on, but right now, I don’t want to move. I still have boxes to unpack and rooms to decorate, but my body is telling me to rest. It’s starting to come together; the pieces are falling into place, making me want to keep going until it’s complete. I see so much that needs to be done and have a hard time sitting still. I’m entirely distracted; to take a moment to write this devotional was difficult. But God calls us to sit for a minute, breathe in his presence, and rest our weary bones. The burden that I’m feeling is something I’ve placed on myself. There is no rush to be finished, although I won’t enjoy my rest until it’s complete. So I took some time, listened to the LORD, and he reminded me that he had taken all my burdens away and to rest in him. I will follow his lead and let him take the reigns and show me the way. I’m on light duty for today, and it will be a great day.
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
