I hear people these days talking about how hard it is to sleep at night, and I can relate, because I once struggled with it, too. I remember long nights, tossing and turning, staring at the alarm clock counting the hours left until I had to get up to go to work.
Why? I was worried. Yep, you name it, I probably worried about it. You see, back then, Jesus was not in the equation.
Jesus will give us rest, not only when we’re weary and burdened, but all the time. And, the more time we spend focusing on Him, the less we will worry, and the more we will be at peace.
These days, I sleep in peace, knowing Jesus will take care of things while I rest. And, you know something else? If we let Him, He’ll take care of things while we’re awake, too.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
