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

As I lie awake unable to sleep -thank you insomnia- I glance over at the clock. 3:30AM. The alarm will sound in only 30 minutes. Yes, 4:00AM starts my day. After the annoying buzzing, I tiredly drag myself from bed and begin the process of getting ready.

Brush teeth. Shower. Lotion. Skincare. Makeup. Hair. Dress. I take my son to work then head back home to take care of the dogs, read my Bible and pray, and workout; then there's laundry, dishes, vacuuming, writing, church ministry prep, dinner, and more.

Throughout the day I hear word of a sick friend and another grieving from loss. I read word of chaos and evil in the world. My mama heart hurts as my child is facing their own struggles.

I fall into bed at night feeling spent. Completely weary physically, mentally, and emotionally. I think that if I can just get a good night sleep I will feel so much better. Sound familiar? While we do need sleep, it doesn't change our early alarms, full planners, or weary hearts. Only Jesus can do that.

Rest for the Weary
