Rest is Good

rest for your soul

It’s been one week that I’ve been weaning myself off from using my sling and I have one more week to go.  I was told to still be careful when it’s off and not to overdue and rest my arm when it gets tired. It’s so easy to forget and I almost want to instinctively use it and I have to keep telling myself rest is still necessary.

Sometimes the simplest lesson is the hardest to learn.  Rest isn’t bad; it’s good!  Even God rested on the seventh day after creation.  Jesus too, went apart from His disciples to refresh Himself in prayer and He was f also found asleep in the middle of a storm.

Jesus knows we, too, need rest from our labors.  He says:

“Come unto Me all you that 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 soul.  For My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”     Matt. 11:28-30

Sometimes we think we can do it all or we have to do it all ourselves; but it can take its toll on our body.   I am once again learning to lean and rest in Jesus. Perhaps  you need to do the same thing.
