Who doesn’t love to get an invitation? It could be to a birthday party or wedding shower or a fall bonfire or campfire. It’s fun to join with others and have a good time.
Sometimes, though, it tires us to be around a lot of people. We need time alone to relax, read a book, take a warm bath or just plain rest. So we invite ourselves to our own private party.
Jesus invites us to come to Him when we are weary and burdened and He will give us rest.
Who doesn’t need rest? With all our busyness we can easily forget to sit at the feet of Jesus, like Mary did. I know when I do take the time to read the Bible, pray and meditate I have a much better attitude about my day.
NO NEED TO WORRY
Sometimes I begin to worry about circumstances and people in my life. Then I remember to accept the invitation of Jesus to come to Him and lay my burdens at His feet.
Come to me, all you 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.”
Now I would like to invite you to revisit some of my older haiku with photos. May you find refreshment and rest.
