50 – Rest

A young man was exhausted. He had been working hard all day, and he was starting to feel the effects. He was tired, he was stressed, and he just wanted to relax.

He walked home slowly, taking his time. He didn’t want to go home yet. He wanted to enjoy the peace and quiet of the evening.

As he walked, he thought about his day. He thought about all the things he had to do, and all the things he still had to do. He felt overwhelmed.

He stopped walking and looked up at the sky. He took a deep breath and sighed. He knew that he needed to find a way to relax.

He thought about what the Bible verse said. He thought about how Jesus said that he would give rest to those who were weary.

He smiled. He knew what he had to do. He had to go to Jesus.

He started walking again, but this time he was walking with a purpose. He was walking to Jesus.

He walked to the church and went inside. He found a quiet place to sit and he prayed. He prayed to Jesus and asked him for rest.

He prayed for a long time, and when he was finished, he felt different. He felt lighter. He felt more relaxed.

He knew that Jesus had heard his prayer, and he knew that Jesus had given him rest.

He stood up and walked out of the church. He felt refreshed and renewed. He was ready to face whatever challenges came his way.

This verse is a reminder that Jesus is always there for us. He is always willing to help us, and he is always willing to give us rest. If we are feeling weary and burdened, we should go to Jesus. He will give us the rest that we need.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yolk upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yolk is easy and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30
