I have been feeling quite burnt out lately with never ever ending work, family and church commitments coming my way non stop. At some point, I felt really exhausted with the many things that constantly strive for my attention, time and energy, as pressure presses down on me.
And I thank God for His Word that always brings comfort and encouragement to me – “Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30. God will not give us what we cannot bear, and He will always provide abundantly in His ways as we seek Him.
This does not mean my commitments disappear into thin air miraculously, making me carefree and problems-free at once. But it gives me strength to press on, experiencing God’s peace and joy as I battle through each busy day. These burdens will not feel as heavy as before because I am not carrying them alone; but God carries these burdens together with me. God is so good, He is so good to me, and you.
I hope this little sharing blesses you in whatever you’re going through right now. I am continuously learning to find rest in God’s word and not in the things of the world (entertainment, shopping, money…).
