A few days ago I was reading my "Jesus Calling" devotional and the words I read have been running through my head and heart for the last week. I figured I should share them with you, because many of you may be just as tired and exhausted and I am.
Jesus Calling - Oct 1.That last sentence, "Rest in me, My weary one, for this is a form of worship." has been playing over and over, sinking into the depths of my soul and changing the bad feelings I've been feeling about my own weariness. I love that it's okay to be weary, and I love even more that resting in His caring arms is a way for me to worship Him. I know that I need to rest. But I needed someone to tell me that I can do so without feeling guilty about all that I am not accomplishing while my eyelids are closed.
WORSHIP ME ONLY. I am King of kings and Lord of lords, dwelling in unapproachable Light. I am taking care of you! I am not only committed to caring for you, but I am also absolutely capable of doing so. Rest in Me, My weary one, for this is a form of worship.
I love my Jesus Calling devotional. It seems to always apply to what I'm going through. I could not recommend it more, for you, for your friends and family. Christmas is coming and you can buy it at the bookstore at GCC or order it online.
"Come to Me , all you who are weary, and I will give you rest." - Matthew 11:28
