Day 21: Rest
"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)
Sleep is short at our house these days. C is nearly 4 months old, and we're lucky if he sleeps in a 4-hour stretch...it's been more like *maybe* 3 hours.
I find that I can go with it for quite a while...until I suddenly hit my breaking point. And then my body just can't do it anymore...it least without a large amount of frustration.
And so often I'm like that with spiritual weariness as well. I will go until I hit a brick wall, collapsing under the weight of whatever it might be.
But it doesn't have to be that way. God promises rest.
And let me tell you, I don't want to fight taking a nap on some Mighty shoulders!
