And I Will Give You Rest

19 Feb

Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

When He walked on this earth people did come to Him. They crowded Him, followed Him wherever He went and took up a lot of His time. He could reach a lot of people by standing on a hillside or standing in a boat just off shore. Today, I don’t know, maybe He would blog. Maybe not. But I can blog about Him and about His words. About what He did two thousand years ago and what He continues to do today.

Today is a rainy day. Quiet. Lots of time to think about what’s important. What matters. Not work, not errands, not the leak above the window. I think reminding each other about God’s grace, mercy and sacrifice are what matter. And so this blog. A way to remind myself, anyone else who cares to read, about what is really important in this life.

“Man’s chief aim is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.”
