Come to Me, All You Who Are Weary

matthew-11-28-400x400

Learn to relate to others through My Love rather than yours.

Your human love is ever so limited, full of flaws and manipulation. My loving Presence, which always enfolds you, is available to bless others as well as you.

Instead of trying harder to help people through your own paltry supplies, become aware of My unlimited supply, which is accessible to you continually.

Let My Love envelop your outreach to other people.

Many of My precious children have fallen prey to burnout. A better description of their condition might be “drainout.” Countless interactions with needy people have drained them, without their conscious awareness. You are among these weary ones, who are like wounded soldiers needing R&R.

Take time to rest in the Love-Light of My Presence.

I will gradually restore to you the energy that you have lost over the years. Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and you will find rest for your souls.

Exodus 33:14; Matthew 11:28-29

Your Turn

Maybe today you’re feeling weary and worn out. Worn out from work or school. Worn out parenting little ones or navigative the difficult teenage years. Worn out as an empty nester. Worn out waiting and waiting for the Lord to answer your prayers. Worn out missing someone you love. Just plain tired out. Jesus call us to come to Him and find rest for our souls. If weariness isn’t your struggle today, keep an eye out for the person in your circle of influence who could use prayer, a hug, or some help and fill that need today! Come join the conversation on our blog. We would love to hear from you. ~ Devotionals Daily
