Day 87 Rest
Monday, December 19, 2016
Come to Me, all you 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. - Matthew 11:28-29
I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice, and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor—it is the gift of God. - Ecclesiastes 3:12-13
Constant work is not what God intended for our lives. We should work hard,yes. but not to the exclusion of rest and times of renewal for our mind and souls. Our food, homes, and friendships are gifts that God meant for us to enjoy. Finding time isn't always easy, but the rewards of a calmer mind and a grateful heart will be well worth the effort.
Lord thank You for the gifts You've bestowed on me. Help me find moments to enjoy them.
